After running vista for over a year now all of a sudden I am getting nagged to activate.
It has been activated since day 1 and this only started on boot this morning.
On trying to validate I get the Error:The validation service is unable to determine whether this copy of Windows Vista is genuine.

I have google like hell this morning but cannot see a definitive solution.

So now what.

From MS UK themselves,

If you are experiencing Product Activation issues,
please contact the Product Activation Team on 0800 0188 354

Thought I might have run into trouble with something (but didn't) but kept the number in case.
