    Vista Registration

    I have installed vista on my computer at home and thought that I had
    registered it after installation. Now it it telling me that the registration
    key for that copy of Vista is already in use and I need a new copy or new
    key.....

    What do I do? This copy came directly from Microsoft......

    You would have to select Activate by Phone and give them a call. They can
    activate it for you with no problem.

    As for why it lost the activation? Windows Activation is a controversial way
    of stopping piracy and for some people, very buggy. Some have to reactivate
    after a Windows Update, which isn't supposed to happen.
