This activation system is as stupid as useless... it caused me a lot of trouble at work.
Just download XP-AntiSpy, it can make Windows think you did the activation, that should solve your problem.

Contact MS support and they'll get you running again. Happens all the time to a friend of mine.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.

Yeah, just harass MS any time of the day or night. The sometimes ask you for your name and the reason why you are activating so often. I wouldn't be too worried about their reasons. I think they are more interested in people who may by trying to use YOUR serial number, rather than you reactivating your own (such as on multiple systems, or on the one due to isses). Just remember, set the system clock BEFORE intalling window, or you will lose your activation period immediatly, then you have to phone, cause you can't log on to activate via modem.
