Hello, this morning out of nowhere my laptop made a beeping and froze, completely whilst browsing the internet as i normally do. I had no choice but to swtich off the laptop via the on/off button instead of shutdown as it did not unfreeze, when i turned the laptop back on i had a virus which was basically a fake virus scanner up that refused to be closed and came up telling me i had virus's (I ignored it and attempted to close it) anyway, i tried this and ran a virus scan and got rid of some things and restarted the laptop, this time i had a message telling me to activate Windows as An unauthorized change was made to windows. Now this wouldnt be a problem, but the Product Code is on the bottom of the laptop and it has faded away over time and i have no other Product Key bar that one, so i have no way whatsoever to authorize! Other than this problem when i try to get onto the internet to find a solution to all this i am greeted with 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' 'What you can try: Diagnose Connection Problems' and that is it, the rest of the browser is white. I have a full internet connection, and one of my programs says that i have a stable connection, and when i go to something like facebook i have the little blue f at the start of the url, but no internet webpage!

What on earth can i do?! I'm running another full virus scan now but as for the activation i dont know! I read theres programs that get get Product keys back that are encrypted within files? But until i can use the internet thats useless!?
