Has any one else recently noticed some of there computers needing reactivating ? not sure if it is a new update maybe ?
Mine are all OEM .. None indicate they require activating and are actually working fine .
Only reason i noticed because i wanted to go into safe mode and it said it required activating .. so i run the activation program and it did require it !
there is no baloon messages stating i require activation ?

Possible hdd issue?
Had this problem on an OEM XP pro desktop, turned out to be errors on the HDD.
You could try the CHKDSK /R option, or your favourite HDD tool to check for bad blocks.
Someone also suggested to me that it could be malware, but in my case it wasn't.
