    This forum is intended for assisting customers who are experiencing a problem with Windows Genuine Advantage.

    Product activation troubleshooting is not generally done here because it is not directly associated with WGA.  Product Activation is part of Windows setup and installation.  All we can do for thorny activation issues such as yours is point you in sort of the right direction:
