I bought it from Frys and it has the product key on the outside yadda, yadda. In the property section of the computer it shows it is activated etc. I didnt change the motherboard. THe original ms person I talked with said something about I didnt "register" the key way back when. I guess calling to get a different tech would be worth a shot. I'd think my pop up blocker setting would stop the "warning" from showing
The password problem would be like when you log onto calguns, click on the user area and the "saved" user and password would show so I dont need to type it all again... Do these sound like some sort of registry problem?
