Vistas revalidation problem!

    Question

  • Hey guys. Anyways, when i turned my computer on this morning, and before my computer could log in, i got a notice saying: The Windows Vistas product key you typed is invalid for activation. Note that my computer had been running this Vistas system with the product key for over a month with no problems. I tried retyping my product key, but it didnt work. I tried to go to thw Micrisoft website to validate it, but i can't find where to go, and all the optionsI did find required me to be logged in, which i was not. Please help!

    Probably the easiest thing to do would be to try a System Restore back to a time the system worked properly – boot to Safe Mode, and you should be offered the option.
