Question about Computers & Internet
Where is it?
Posted on Nov 05, 2008
I assume that your Windows copy is legitimate and that you have been using it for a while now before this problem happened. Lately people are getting this problem after doing windows updates, after doing the updates they reboot the system then the problem happens. If this is the case I suggest you boot into Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before the Windows logo, choosing Safe Mode, then login to your account then click NO when a prompt appears. It should then show up System Restore, choose a date when your computer is working before the problem started, hit next, then it should do the process. If everything works out ok, you should be able to get back on our desktop again. Then just disable the Windows Updates option in Control Panel.
You may also opt to call Microsoft Techsupport for this issue so that they can give you a correct activation code. This is applicable if you bought your copy of Windows from a retail store. If your Windows came with your computer which is OEM they may not support.
Worst case scenario is you may to do a clean reinstall of Windows to fix this issue. This entails formatting and deleting the contents of the drive and starting from scratch. You should backup your files first before you do something like this ok?!
Hope this helps!
