Windows Key Verification

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Was updating my video card drivers and this box popped up an wants me to verify my Windows Key. I was wondering if any body has had this pop up yet. I was just thinking it was a little odd because I've only used the key once.

I've seen it, I think. W10 has several such verification messages, I'm not sure if they all do the same. I think it's normal.

I had a similar issue with Windows after I rebuilt last week. Just called Microsoft and they fixed it no problem.

Hi, I don't mean to barge in like this but I have a similar problem, just installed a brand new Windows 7 Professional OEM, it first tells me product key expired or something along those lines, and when I try to re enter it, it tells me invalid key. I tried Microsoft chat, and the person just told me, "Please contact Microsoft" and just left the chatroom. Can you please help me?

Yeah, when I tried to reactivate it using the Windows utility it just gave me a number, took a few minutes in a phone menu, but the number is this one:

Windows activation: (888) 571-2048
