  • Hello activation again,

    Please backup and offload your data, then do a clean installation, including repartitioning and reformating the hard disk drive, using a genuine hologrammed Windows CD.

    Once Windows is installed, use a name-brand antivirus program and keep it up to date.  Keep your Windows installation up to date.  And follow the number one rule:  DO NOT do you routine computing tasks while logged on with a Computer Administrator account; instead, do you daily computing with a Limited user account and ONLY log on with a Computer Administrator account when the task at hand requires it.
