  • Cam A,

     

    You are describing a seldom seen problem with Product Activation, NOT validation.

     

    The likely problem is corruption of vital licensing files in the \windows\system32 folder.

     

    Try a repair reinstallation.   If no joy, a reformat and clean installation will be required.
