Did you actually use one of the genuine Beta keys for your initial activation?
THANKS for that Mr Grim! Nice one.
Yes, I didn't like seeing the numbers in the bottom right corner of the screen, so I used the PlusPatch program to remove it, and done a few other things too. My fault then, I just like 'tinkering'!! lol.
Obviously then I have to tread carefully when using these unofficial programs!
Edit: I've just looked into the Windows\system32 folder and found the file was called slui.exe.bak, so I just renamed it to slui.exe and then the error message no longer appears and I get the proper 'change product key' message! So that PlusPatch program must of renamed it so that Windows avoids using it. In future, I won't use that software, I like my Windows intact!!
