Windows 7: I constantly have to Activate Windows...

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I would not do a restore or other modifications. If you try those and then take it to back to the dealer, they might give you a hassle. As others have said on this thread, get it corrected by the dealer while your warranty is still in place.
