    Vista Ultimate downloaded and installed 2 updates yesterday including Office
    Live Add-In.

    This morning when I booted my PC I got "Your copy of Windows has been
    activated successfully" then "You may be the victim of counterfeit software.
    Windows Dreamscene etc.."

    What's all that about? Any ideas?

  2. I have update a number of system with this and the other updates such as the
    IE 8 RC1 etc, and none of my Vista systems reactivated.
    This is across x86 and x64 systems running Home Premium and Ultimate
    editions with SP1.
    Your problem may not be related to the updates.

    Thanks Mike

    However, nothing new has been installed on this PC recently, no downloads or
    other infections and my PC is 100% genuine Microsoft software. The only
    difference is the Microsoft updates.
