    I connected my Vista ThinkPad via WiFi at airport and within minutes my
    laptop said I had an illegal copy of Vista which immediately shut down and
    said I had to call Microsoft etc. etc. This laptop is just a few months
    old and so was shocked when this message popped up and of course my Vista
    was legal.

    So I just closed it up and gave it to my son to fix when I landed in
    California. He said oh, you have probably been hit by the microsoft bug
    server which he had recently read about some problems with this error
    popping up. He fixed it and I took it with me to my next stop in Newport
    Beach and low and behold I get the error again.....so I called Microsoft and
    after 20 minutes or so I got it working (by this time I was pretty irriated)
    but no problems since (I think). My son is putting in a 200G hard drive in
    it for me.

    I am back in Missouri so hopefully when I get it next week it will be
    working fine.

    Any one else get this error?

    I got my laptop back today and now I got the same error and am on hold
    wating for microsoft....what is going on.

    gee, I wonder if its possible someone else has registered a copy of
    Vista using your product key?

    Okay, spent 20 or so minutes to get another zillion numbers to type in to
    activate......I hope this nightmare is over......no explanation as to why
    this is happening.......guess this hard drive update could be it but I doubt
    because my son was using it for a week.

    I think it is possible, though unlikely, that someone else is using your
    product key. One way to find out might be, while talking to a real person
    to activate, to see if they can give you a list of dates on which the key
    was activated. If it has happened more times or on different dates than you
    recall, ask the person how to get around the problem.
