    license expired in a genuine vista!

    i had my vista business 3 months ago
    it worked just fine,even after sp1 installation
    it is a legal copy and i got the original product key and activated
    successfully
    now windows tell me "your license will expire in 12 days"
    what shall i do!do i reactivate or will i have to get a new key!
    knowing that i didn't change any hardware of my pc.....

    The chances are that you have a Beta version of SP1; remove it, and install
    correct version SP1

    the same just happened to me its because we are running an RC version of SP1
    which expires soon

    uninstall the current SP1 & the final product should arrive in windows updates
    install it & there should be no reactivation required...
