Vista Activation irritation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi recieved a notification that my Vista will expire soon, after stuggling for a long time, and finally using "slui" with some great difficulty I got my Control Panle >> System to say that my windows has been activated.

     

    An hour or 2 later I was reminded again that my Vista will expire soon, so I checked my Control Panel... The one window tells me to activate, the other says I am already activated, so I waited it out to see what happens when the expiry time arrives.

     

    I constantly get a message that my Vista will expire in 0 hours, I click close and nothing happens. Well nothing happens immediately. Every 2 - 3 hours my machine crashes, without warning or a BSOD.

     

    I have had enough, I am downgrading to XP and waiting for the OS after VIsta.
