Need Help- very frustrated RRS feed

  • Question


    I just purchased Windows Live OneCare from Office Max and I keep getting the error code 0020-80070643.  I have read through the forums and have tried all that is suggested with uninstalling Defender and it says I can only do that command with programs that are installed.  It's not on the list anywhere of programs running but I'm still getting the error and have attempted multiple times.  I have also searched to try talking with somebody and it asks for a 20-digit product key but my product key is 25- digits and so it says that my product key is invalid.  Can somebody please help!  I'm very annoyed with what I'm feeling like is a waste of money at this point.

  • The deleted post had a subject line of "Need Help-very frustrated" and no content. I suspect that was a posting error. This Microsoft Knowledge Base article may help resolve the 0020 error - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930162

    that's my problem- I can't contact support because I'm having issues with the product key not working either.  I've read both the links you sent to long before I ever posted a thread- can I not just talk to someone??!!
