    The Problem:

    It says I need to activate windows, but there's no tool for that anywhere on my system.  Is there a manual way to do so?  It's preventing me from getting DirectX Updates, and I'm really beginning to think someone needs to sue them a third time over this malfunctioning tool.

  • 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. Sometimes if these files get corrupted, they can cause this type of problem.

    If the above procedure does not solve the problem, then try:
