I recently had an issue with my computer and was forced to use the refresh option with windows 8. After i completed the refresh process i began getting requests to activate my software. I attempted to use the product code i was given after the purchase of windows 8 but it would not work. after several hours on the phone with microsoft i was finally informed i would have to repurchase windows 8 from them. I have not been able to reactivate my software and keep getting errors when using the update process. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas how to correct this problem?
