Required activation after driver update RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • All I did was install new updates from windows update.  This included 3 driver updates.  After a reboot I was told that I needed to activate windows.  It would not activate over the internet because of hardware changes it said. 


    I  had to call the activation phone number and talk to a rep to activate windows. 


    I like vista and I like MS products but that really ticked me off.  MS needs to come up with a better way so they don't tick off legit users.

  • I had a similar problem last week when installing recommended driver updates via Windows Update. It was a minor inconvenience. My call was answered quickly, and the operator was helpful.

    Though, I do hope they address and fix this issue eventually.
