I absolutely did talk to a activate by phone person, she kept telling me bring up the activation screen and I kept telling her I wasn't on Vista that my Vista wasn't useable at this point, I did ask to talk to her supervisor she transferred me to this person who barely speaks English( a brilliant strategy Dilbert would appreciate) anyway as I mentioned before after spending 20 min of reading her my product key she told me I could get help installation help for $59. I've gone over this stuff in a previous post. Check out my site Jim's Lounge Public Domain video, music by Andres Segovia
there's some entertaining stuff there. I appreciate your concern but don't worry about my Vista issues because as I mentioned earlier I no longer have Vista issues.
