What does activation key mean?


I am assuming by the category title that you are asking about an activation key for an Operating System. An Activation Key is something like a serial number. The OS manufacturer provides the activation key to provide copyright protection and prevent software piracy. Each key can only be used one (or as often as the OS manufacturer allows). Until you enter the key, the software is not considered activated. This may, depending upon the software, have restrictions. For example, Windows gives you 30 days to activate Windows OS. After that, it essentially shuts down, restricting use to very limited activities until the activation key is obtained and entered.

Anyone have a working windows xp home sp3 product activation key? Mine has exceeded its limit


Re activate

Microsoft Windows requires an activate code when you install the operating system. This product key is evaluated each time the system is booted or when you decide to update the operating system critical files. If you installed an incorrect key or your machine's hardware changed significantly, the operating system prompts you for a valid key. If your product key has expired, you can contact Microsoft to purchase a new one. Enter a new key in the system settings in Windows to enable the operating system and continue using the machine.

Click the Windows Start button, then select "Computer." This opens your computer properties window. Click the toolbar item labeled "System properties." In the Window that opens, click "Click here to activate Windows now" and click the "Continue" button. This opens a dialog window with a product key text box. Enter your valid Windows product key and press the "Ok" button. Reboot the machine for the changes to take effect. The next time you boot, the operating system is activated and the error message no longer displays. Hope this helps.

This computer use to have windowsxp it was upgrade to windows vista but do not have a product key can i install the windowxp the key no#for windows xp is in the back of the computer or how to buy a key no.


You have to enter a new Vista product id to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista. The Windows XP product id will not work for Windows Vista. If you bought the Vista from an authorized retailer of Microsoft products then the serial number would be on the back of the software pack.
If you want to you can buy an activation code from Microsoft. Having an activation code means you don't need a product id and that your right to use the software is recognized by Microsoft.
I am not sure if you also have a problem with Microsoft Office because your question says "problem with Microsoft Office Professional 2007...". If you do then the same thing applies. an activation code is even stronger than a product id for both Windows and Office because a product id only gives you permission to install and use the software offline for a short time and it still needs to be activated by Microsoft before you can use it fully or longer. An activation code allows you to use the software without any limitations online or offline and also to get updates and upgrades for them from Microsoft.
If you cannot afford genuine Office software or a Microsoft Office activation code then you can download free software called Open Office which is almost as good as Microsoft Office and can even be used to open and edit Microsoft Office documents.
It is always better to have the genuine activated version.

Here are the sites you need:

www.openoffice.org

Your Windows XP is not activated. This means you must find your original Windows XP disc, and the sleeve that the disc comes in should have the product key on the back.

Hi,

The Microsoft Office Processional 2010 which came with your laptop was a trail version. It was there for you to use it and check the software and buy it if you like.

The product key at the bottom of the laptop is the key for Microsoft Windows operating system installed in your laptop.

To buy a product key for your office you can visit the following link, MS Office Store.

Shrey

I AM TRYING TO ACTIVATE MY NORTON UTILITIES PROGRAM THAT I DOWN LOADED LAST WEEK.IT IS ASKING ME FOR THE ACTIVATION KEY. I DON,T HAVE IT. WHERE DO I GET IT? IT SAYS I HAVE 22 DAYS LEFT TO ACTIVATE,


You should have received the activation code when you purchased the download....if you didn't purchase the download, then go online to www.symantec.com to purchase/activate your program. Print your receipt with the activation code on it...or you should have received an email from Norton (Symantec) with your activation code. If the program you downloaded was a trial version, then you will need to purchase it in order to get your activation code......

Windows xp activation code


How to Activate Windows XP in 5 Minutes or Less
Having rebuilt, tested, and reloaded hundreds of computers, I’ve become keenly aware of one of the unavoidable speedbumps during setup — Windows XP’s product activation. After one too many activations, Windows complains that your product key is no longer valid or you’ve exceeded the limit. To keep Windows on the up-and-up (and stay atop the seemingly endless flood of security patches), you’ll have to activate once more with Microsoft. Here are some time-tested tips that will get you through the mandatory process in five minutes or less.

Try Internet Activation First

If you have an internet connection when activating Windows, attempt to use the online route first. In the Windows Product Activation Wizard, choose “Yes, lets activate Windows over the internet now”, followed by “No, do not register with Microsoft”. You may receive a friendly “Thank you!” and your copy of Windows will be good to go.
If internet activation fails and the Wizard complains about “too many activations” or an “incorrect product key”, you still have the option of calling Microsoft’s toll free number to activate Windows. As long as the Wizard doesn’t report “invalid product key,” options are still open. An “invalid” (not “incorrect,” mind you) key is one reported or detected as pirated, so you’ll have to find some other way to make your software go.

Phone Activation

Activating Windows via phone is about as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist, but knowing exactly which buttons to push and the right words to say can help cut your time in half and get you the necessary code.
If your online activation from above failed, click the Telephone button to generate an Installation ID, which you’ll read off to a customer service representative shortly. Call the number for your appropriate country, and you’ll enter into a phone menu system which would like nothing more than for you to activate by reading the numbers onscreen. The software behind the menu, however, does the same checking as the online activation method — meaning if your online activation failed, so too will the automated phone activation. Press 0 on the phone keypad when asked if you are calling to activate Windows XP (the first opportunity you are prompted for input). Like many newer phone menus, it will respond “I see that you’d like to transfer to a customer service representative”, and subsequently try to convince you to go back to the automated system. Ignore the pre-recorded woman’s somewhat rude request to go back, and press 1 to to talk to a human.
After a short delay and the distinct possibility of listening to some poorly chosen music, a representative will ask for either the first six digits of your Installation ID, or the full set. (The first six digits of the Installation ID are the only real keys to generating a Confirmation ID, however the reps more often than not ask you to read off the rest of the group. The rest of the numbers are encoded values detailing some very basic hardware details about your computer.)
If asked “Is this the first time you’re activating Windows?”, say yes. If you say no, the representative will ask for an explanation as to why you’re re-activating Windows.
If asked “Did you purchase the software from a retail store?”, say “It came pre-installed with my computer.”
As a final time-kill (their system sometimes takes a minute to generate Confirmation IDs on days with a particularly heavy load), you may be asked for your Product Key (Windows serial number).
After you’ve given them the necessary information, the representative will read the Confirmation ID to you, which you can simply type into the provided fields. Using these methods, it takes about 4 minutes to activate Windows on average.
