Activation not recognised in System


Graham.

Likes # 0

I activated Windows 7 online, and got the confirmation message. But when I look in System it says '26 days to activate'.

I'm reluctant to activate again in case the Product Key is seen as already used, and my version is labelled illegal.

Anyone help, please? Or should I ring Microsoft (I would welcome the number).

Thanks, I activated online again and now I get 'Activated' in System. I'll follow your link's advice if it reverts to 'not activated' again.
