because when i ran vundofix it says i have no virus.
but i have another big problem
over the last couple weeks i have received an alert on start up:
'since windows was first activated the hardware has changed significantly. due to
these changes windows must be reactivated within 3 days'.
i have received these alerts 3 or 4 times now and each time i have reactivated.
yesterday i got the same alert and when i tried to reactivate, it requested my product
key which i typed in. it then said, i have used the product key too many times and need to
buy a new one.
is this a virus? i don't understand whats going on because i havent' changed the hardware.
i am really worried i wont be able to use my computer in 3 days time. i rang up windows
and they tested my product key and said it was legitimate. (it always was and still is).
do you know what i can do?

What I suggest you do is a REPAIR INSTALLATION of windows, using the link in my signature as a guide. Don't worry, after doing this all your programs will still work and you won't lose any files or settings. All this does is replace your operating system files (C:\WINDOWS). You will need to redo all windows updates after doing this. So make sure the first thing you do after the repair installation is done is going to Windows Update. Keep going to Windows Update after reboots until there are no critical updates left to get!
