Been running a legit copy of OEM vista home premium for a while. All of a sudden I get the "You may be the victim of counterfeit" messages...
... Great ...
I do the whole online validation thing ... no success. Windows is now in lockdown.
slui.exe is running and giving me the options of:
- reduced functionality
- Type another product key
- Contact Microsoft
There is no phone number to do the reactivation ... the online one just fails again ... and the contact microsoft stuff just opens generic support.
Any ideas?, there does not seem to be a logical path forward for activation of my perfectly legal copy of windows.
I run Linux on all my systems, and the one Windows box I have decides to lock me out without a method of resolving the issue short of buying another key.
