Activate Windows Now

Hi my name is Deanna Adams and i am having a problem i hope to get fixed soon. I have not wanted to do much because 1 not sure really what to do. 2 i cannot seem to get back to original message.
But anyway i recently got a message i think from action center saying i had to call this 1-800 number to do so well because it was very late i set a sticky note on laptop with number to call. However when i call it says while holding to make sure the activate windows now was up and i cannot get to that screen or message for anything now. The only thing i have came across is asking me to put my product key in. I do not know where that is. Please Help me!!

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You could try the automated activation by telephone method:

Click Start and type slui.exe 4 then click the link under the Programs list.

Select your location from the drop-down list then click Next.

Call the telephone number listed and follow the automated instructions.

When you are given your Confirmation ID you may find it easier to jot the numbers down , and then enter them in the Confirmation ID boxes.

During the automated conversation you'll be asked to confirm on how many machines Windows is installed, make sure you choose the option for one machine.

Once you've entered your Confirmation ID, click Next and your system should then activate.

Next, download Speccy here: Speccy - Download

Run it and it should list the correct Product Key for your copy of Windows.

Write it down and keep it in a safe place.
