Activation Genuine Advantage Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seem that after restarting my computer I have to activate windows again.  I have done this a half dozen times now and can not find out how to fix the problem.  I am running Windows XP Pro and I have the original disc which I purchased myself.  Also I have to get the Genuine Advantage redo each.  But can not do that until I activate the software again and again.

    Can anyone offer some type of suggestion.

  • Hello jkerry,

    What happens once you activate?

    Does it immediately ask to be reactivated?
    Does it stay activated till you change hardware and/or install drivers?

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
