    I am german so my english is bad

    Today I saw a key in my systemtray
    I clicked on it and a windows opened that I have to activate my windows or
    my windows won't work anymore

    I bought it at the end of januar and never had problems with it
    I also didn't chance my hardware!!

    If I entry my key for online activation, it'll say that my key is already in

    I uploaded 2 pictures
    please help quickly

    thank you in advance

    I am English and my english is bad too ;-)

    It doesn't necessarily mean your key has been stolen. For some reason,
    windows has decided something has changed to require re-activation (of
    course I'm assuming you activated it back in January). Just try the phone

    I wrote the same problem in a german message board and they also told me to
    try a re-activation

    but both online and phone activation doesn't work
    the computervoice told me that there is a problem *bla bla* and it'll
    connect me to a microsoft support
    but the support is only to 11 pm available

    so what can I do now?

    I remember....... I installed 3 updates today
    maybe it's caused by them?

    somehow my first reply isn't shown

    I tried both
    online and phone activation didn't work

    I dialed all numbers correctly

    I remember, I installed 3 updates today
    maybe it's triggered by them?

    Sounds like you will have to call before 11:00 PM.

    You need to call for the activation at a time when a representative is
    available to speak to you.
