• Question

  • I just recently compressed my c:\ drive on my computer and immediately afterwards was notified that I need to activate windows.  All the Microsoft KB and other articles I have not been able to find out how to activate my windows so that I know if my product is Genuine which it is since I have been using this computer for over a year with no problems.  Also, I have tried the KB article telling me to go to START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, ACTIVATE WINDOWS, but that option is not available to me.  What should I do.  PLEASE HELP!!!

  • 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 re-activation on the following reboot.

  • Will this crash the hardrive?  Will all of my files remain intact or will I lose all of them?

  • I do not have the file name wpa.bak.  I already renamed the wpa.dbl to wpaold.dbl but the other file still remains (wpa.dbl).  Do I need to delete it?  How can I get the wpa.bak file since its not on my computer?
