    OEM Activation 2.0 Data-->


    Today my home built computer (I used to be a system builder & other jobs) alerted me that my windows has had substantial hardware changes (none whatsoever in the past 3/4 days or so!) and needs to be re-validated.

    Maybe it was the USB keyboard I did try yesterday (not my normal keyboard but an add-on being tryed out as a secondary kybd so my normal was still plugged in).  There was no "activate windows" notice until 2 hours ago and nothing changed at all to triggure it.

    I called the activation center and their phone system malfunctioned.  Transferred me to a tech.  And the tech said he cannot help me and call back in a few hours.

    I'm glad I'm not a small business otherwise I would be out of business not being able to use the computer!

    I bought 2 retail licenses and none of this OEM stuff so there should not be a problem.

    How can I reactivate windows or am I going to have to buy Windows all over again?  I'm not ready to spend weeks learning LINUX (again, I'm out of practice) and give up on Windows.

  • Hello Randolph D Garrett,

    There is a piece of malware that masquerades as the Activation wizard, so please be sure that's not what you are seeing:

    Assuming it's not the above, lauch the activation wizard by clicking Start>All Programs>Accessories>Activate Windows.  If you do not see that in your menu system, click Start>Run and type

    %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a      [note the space before /a]

    to bring up the activation wizard.

    Try automatic online activation first.  If no joy, try telephonic activation.

    Post back to let us know how you did.
