I turned on my computer and it has a pop-up that reads "The windows vista home premium product key you typed is invalid for activation". There are 3 options 1. Access your computer with reduced funtionality. This will allow you to buy a new product key online. 2. Type a different product key. 3. Contact Dell to help reolve this problem.
Before this the computer was working, in fact I used it earlier in the day, I didn't download anything, didn't do anything new. I've had this computer for about 3 years. I don't know why i'm suddenly getting this pop up, maybe it's a virus I don't know.
When I click on the first option (1) my firefox opens to this Genuine Windows website http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/genuine
I tried to look it up, seems like a lot of ppl have this problem and no solution.
I have no access to my desktop, no start menu, no taskbar, time, icons, etc, just firefox and when I minimize firefox there is the pop-up. I thought about running malware bytes but i have no access to that.
