Apart from activating with a beta key, did you use any hacks to stop expiration ?

If not, it's just random, probably after a restart it will be gone.

Worst case, you might need to re-enter the activation key.

Ok, im pretty sure it fixed itself when I restarted. I was just alittle frazzled when I saw that I had an hour left of life on my computer. I was like WTF?!?!?!?!. I havent used any hacks on this build, btw. Ty for the responses btw. I love sevenforums :)

Hey Compaker,

Even if the activation had expired you can run a command to reset it for 90 days, from an Administrative Command prompt you only need to run "slmgr.vbs -rearm"
