Resolved Question

Registration Pop Up

by Walt H / September 28, 2012 9:14 PM PDT

How do you handle the registration pop up asking you to register when you've already registered the device? I had to re-install my system and I had registered before. I didn't see an option to not register, I know I saw "register later".

What device? What pop-up?

If you mean the Windows activation with Microsoft, just activate. If you don't you'll get a restricted system after 60 days, and I don't think that's what you want.

I really don't know. I'm just the type person who does not like to repeat the same "stuff" over and over unnecessarily.

In the Uninstall section under Programs, Toshiba Registration was listed so I uninstalled it.
