I assume you are talking about Windows 7,you could try activating via the internet and if that fails use the automated phone system. You will get the choice of whether to activate via phone if you go that route,pick county UK you will get a freephone number then just follow the instructions.

I have had it happen to me with a disk I got direct from Microsoft so unless there is a good chance you were sold a fake,this crap happens and doing the phone activation should sort it.

I had a similar problem a few months ago, with a retail disc installed 18 months before. Did as Chronos 2 and Jock 1e said, and MS sorted it by phone.I think it happened due to an update..
