    Just got the following message at restart:

    "Since Windows was first activated on this computer, the
    hardware on the computer has changed significantly. Due
    to these changes, Windows must be reactivated within 3
    days. Do you want to reactivate Windows now?"

    Why do I have to reactivate, how to I do it, and what
    info will I need?

    Thanks in advance

    hardware, just like it says.

  3. That is normal. If this is your first re-activate, it should do so via the
    Internet. The rest will require a call to Microsoft.

  4. Or phone through to the 0800 number as suggested on screen; its painless,
    can be done without talking to anyone and only takes about 5 mins.
