If you still have the recovery partition:
Restart your computer then look for the F key which controls your BIOS then look for the option "reload default setting" then follow the on-screen instructions.

If not, please let me know what version of windows you have installed, the type of recovery media?

I can't get you clearly, if you buy the product (win vista) then it should come with the DVD but if it's a crack version, you need to apply patch/install the crack so that it'll not prompt you again.. If you have problem with this, do let me know.. through my email.. Good luck..

You need to turn off Windows updates. For this go to the Control Panel--->Windows Updates and select Turn off windows updates. If the problem still there, take the backup of your documents and desktop in a mass storage or another drive of your computer and install a new copy of Windows and after finishing installation of Windows first turn off Windows Updates.

I believe choosing an authorized vendor or partner of Microsoft; you will feel relieved and confident. If the price is not so high or even low, you must love it and will buy it without any hesitation. If so, go to the online site http://www.Windows10KeyShop.com/ . That will be your best choice.
