Those have been known to expire. I think I'm seeing 5 years so they give you one year grace.
If I wasn't subtle enough, you get to call them again to sort it out.
Good morning all. Thanks in advance for your input.
When I purchased my copy of Windows XP at the college I attended in 04, I called Microsoft and validated the software over the phone, and then again over the internet. Later still I installed Windows Genuine Advantage via auto update. Now still, in spite of all that, I am getting a pop up intro for Windows Genuine Advantage NOTIFICATIONS every time I start Windows. Is there a way to remove this (Notifications)? As many times as I have verified this OS through Microsoft there should be a limit to the paranoia. The last thing I need is their faulty code writing locking up my system for a bogus assumption that my OS is pirated (AND YES, IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED TO OTHERS WHOSE SOFTWARE IS GENUINE). If any sound method of getting rid of it please let me know.
