Ok, IE says it cannot connect to those pages, but have no problems with Firefox.
Not bring up the Activation Dialog?
No, strangely enough it does not, I tried that earlier: >>
'oobe' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
I also saw that 'This file is corrupt' box.
When those keys were rejected during set up I was warned about not entering the key then, as it could cause a problem with activation later, however, I had no other choice but to click 'next'.
I called Microsoft again today.......wanted to see what another advisor would say.......he recommended to try reinstalling.
Obviously apprehensive about that, but I have a major problem. What do you think, I don't want to make things worse?
Although I would prefer not to, I'm also thinking of using the bypass method if there are no other options left. I did have a licensed copy.
Is Colorado home for you?
**Just opened 'Activate Windows' in Start > All Programs > Properties......please see attached image.
