    Hi Windows Community!

    I got Windows Vista Ultimate as a gift from a Microsoft Employee, and I did
    activate it, just after the installation.

    Yesterday, I did update to the Service Pack 1, and now it says that my key
    is already used :S

    Proof that I have the disks:

  4. You can reset your Windows Vista activation by performing the following:

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in: slui.exe 4

    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

    3. Select your Country.

    4. Follow the instructions for phone activation.

    5. Once completed, restart your computer.

    Peter,
    Not unusual, it's just reporting it is being used by YOU. It's confused.
    There should be a toll free number to call. Go through prompts, if you
    don't get exactly what you need, wait on the line for a real person.
    They'll ask a couple of questions and reactivate it for you. Make sure you
    have the key handy.

  8. Hello Peter,
    Did you get a ballon popup prior to the activation notification and if so
    what was on that message? The exact text string if possible.

    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
