IUntstalled USB VOIP Phone - Activation required AGAIN! RRS feed

  • Question


    Hello guys.

    This one has got to take the price

    I just plugged in my TOPCOM VOIP/Line phone into the USB plug on one of my compouters.

    It took less than a second, and BAM! Windows needs to be activated.

    Gentlemen, it is already activated.

    No-body in their right mind can claim that connectiong something to the USB plug, constitutes a mjor hardware change, warranting yet another activation

    Since this computer (HP Pavillion 9050.pt, VistaH.P. upgraded and activated to with Vistya Ultimate) has only recently been activated, I am somewhat screwed if this really is needed again.


    Pardon my french here, but people in Redmond have NOT done their best for the customer in this case. This activation s... is only about securing MS a greater income. I am beginning to understand why people are looking for hacks.


    Yep you're reading me right. As a fierce european, I do expect, and will claim the freedom of usage iensured by the framework of lovcal law. So


    Where do I send the bill for the time required to fix this?


    I need to have a working solution asap.
