Windows 7: Installed new Activation Technologies . . .

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64
 
 
Installed new Activation Technologies . . .

So the update was offered unticked, but I went ahead and installed it, over 4000 registry changes later, everything works . . . . After the reboot, Norton 360 needed another reboot to update itself. So 2 reboots later Windows cheerfully comes up with my copy of Windows isn't valid. Clicked get genuine, 3 seconds later everything is fine. I wasn't surprised about the announcement - it happened once before. It seems that 7 is a bit forgetful about the status of your license.

Will update gaming box next, followed by a clean install on another PC. I would go ahead and install this update. Sooner or later, Microsoft will push it on you, but you have nothing to hide - right? And yes, I spent a few hundred for this copy of Ultimate to clean install 7 onto the ultraportable in my specs, and it was worth it.

I have installed it on my laptop, but didn't start the laptop again yet as I use my desktop as main computer, laptop is for college mostly. I hope not to have trouble like that when I start it back.

That thought nullifies the US Constitution's Bill Of Rights, regarding illegal search and seizure...or do you think that it was written only to protect criminals? Perhaps you guy should form a club and have a theme song. You could use the melody for the Mickey Mouse Club and have sing-a-longs.
