As bad as Microsoft's current obsession with WGA / Activation is, they're
not going around telling people to reactivate off the back of one little
problem. I suspect that the author of the post you read was either full of
it or leaving some very important parts of the story out.
Moving on to your actual problem, if you trawl around these groups for a
while you'll see some recent reports from people who have had activation
issues after installing some new drivers
for various nVidia products. Could
this also be describing you, do you think?
