  • Try the following:

    1. Reboot your computer into "Safe Mode".

    2. Go to Start > Run and type: %systemroot%\system32 then press the Enter key.

    3. Locate these two files: wpa.dbl and wpa.bak

    4. Rename the wpa.dbl file to wpaold.dbl and wpa.bak to wpaold.bak

    5. Reboot your computer into Normal mode.

    This will force activation on the following boot, but should remove the message that you are already activated message. Sometimes if these files get corrupted, they can cause this type of problem.

  • Can you explain the error? You shouldn't be in activation mode.

  • I reinstalled windows because I wiped clean the hard drive.....now it seems it is only going to let me use it for 30 days.....as soon as I was done installing windows, it gave me this error.  I expected to need to activate it, so I thought everything was normal until when I click to activate, it says it is already activated.....then when it is restarted again, it tells me I need to activate....hope this is a little clearer:-)

     

    Thanks,
