    why can not microsoft give new keys,to vista users instead of the phone,why
    is it that when u activated a few times u then av'e to use the phone,would it
    not be easy just to send a new activation key direct to the users pc,it would
    be alot simpler,than giving your 25 digit product code every time u activate
    vista. Since av'e installed vista i think av'e activated about 10 times. Why
    is vista so sesitive to hardware changes.

    What kind of hardware changes?
    I added a CD RW to mine and didn't have to reactivate it.

    Replace one, not add one. And then replace your NIC and see what happens.

    Easier still ... apparently just changing a video driver can cause one to
    have to reactivate Vista. Duh!

    Once I figured out how to make dual channel DDR actually work as dual
    channel, I moved the RAM around to enable dual channel, and upgraded the
    128MB Video Card to a 256MB one. I didn't add or remove any RAM, just
    changed the slots it was in.
    Poof, you have to reactivate...this copy of Vista has already been activated
    the maximum number of times...
    Some may say a phone call is no big deal, I say it is bull excrement.
    For someone who buys a machine & never touches the guts, it may be OK.
    For anyone who actually uses their system for something other than an email
    appliance, it's a load of crap.
