hi, i am now writing from the library. well, i am stuffed. looking for advice.
i closed down and then reopened my PC - it showed my log in account unlogged in (doesnt normally) and when i clicked on that a microsoft box came up and said -
windows product activation
"this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can log on. do you want to activate windows now? " yes or no....
i clicked no. when i clicked 'yes' it was looking for me to out my original reg number in !!!!! !
i went into safe mode and ran avast and malwarebyte scans. nothing.
please tell me what is wrong here ! its that security malious install from MS that caused this.
( i use avast all the time, keep it well updated and scanned and browser clean up too )
what should i do??? go back into safe mode and then what. my PC has been working like a dream this last year - i had got it serviced last summer. and now this this lock out last night or whatever it is. i am certainly not going to put in my reg keys ! help.
