XP deactivated itself? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Windows XP Home somehow deactivated.  What I can remember:  When I noticed that things seemed to be running rather slowly, I determined that I hadn't restarted in 17 days.  The process vsmon.exe (from my ZoneAlarm Pro) was using almost half my CPU capacity at the time.  It may have been running an update or scan or something.  Not thinking of letting it finish, I tried to restart several times, but that gave me no response.  Fearing a virus (however unlikely as I daily scan with AVG Free), I disabled my connection before the restart completed.  After the restart, I got the deactivation messages.  Re-enabling my internet connection did not fix the problem.  This OEM install has been working fine since March 2006.  I can't upgrade to Win7 yet.  (Sorry Microsoft.)  I have 2 days left for activation . . .

    Here are the results of my diagnostics:

    Try telephone activation – I can see nothing in the report that says it should fail.
    If automated telephone activation fails, phone back again, but this time, when the ansafone asks which service you require, do NOT respond. This should force an operator to pick up – they can help you sort it out.
