Good Evening All!
I downloaded 'Driver Booster' from cnet as it was highly rated by the editor to check that my machine had the latest drivers the lazy way.
It then did so and prompted me a required reboot - after which, at sign in I got a message saying my computer has had so many hardware changes my windows would need re activating in three days!! Then after finishing firing up I now have an icon in the system tray saying this copy of windows is not activated and a window saying in order to be properly licensed this copy of windows must be activated.

Only ever use editor rated stuff on cnet like ccleaner and avg - proper gutted
