    Hi,

    I had to reinstall Windows Vista today. I thought activation of the software
    was going to be an issue as there is so much written on the internet about
    this, however activation went ok, but ... surprise surprise, after minutes of
    being using the system and a couple of drivers installed, Windows started to
    display a message suggesting the Windows copy I have is not legal and that I
    need to click on a link to validate.

    After going through the on-line validation process successfuly again,
    Windows still thinks the software is ilegal....

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    I have just finished the activation process successfully through the phone,
    but still have the same problem. Windows still thinks the copy is not
    original.

    Any more ideas please?

    Thanks.

    Did you talk to a human on the phone? That's been suggested a lot on this
    forum for similar problems.

    The op was not clear. From the sound of it- It's not an activation
    problem it's a WGA problem.

    It was a human voice, but just recorded messages taking me through the
    activation process.

    I have successfully revalidated the sofware ten times, but still get the
    warning messages and have reduced functionality.

    At the right bottom of the screen there is message "Windows Vista TM,
    Compilation 6000, This copy of Windows is not original"

  8. Visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ and click on "Validate Windows"
    then restart your computer.

    As mentioned on one of my previous emails, I have finished successfully
    several times the validation process through www.microsoft.com/genuine and
    rebooted the system, but Windows still thinks my copy is not original.

    I would help, but these posts from egghead cafe irritate me to the point
    that I don't want to.

    You are obviously not aware that the "forum" you are posting in leaches most
    of it's posts from the Microsoft News Server in order to make it look far
    busier than it is.

    You will get a far better experience if you use a newsreader and subscribe
    to these groups directly, rather than through the leaching site your using.
