Windows 7: Activation Error: 0xC004C008

24 Jun 2010   #1

Window 7 Ultimate
Activation Error: 0xC004C008


This is the error I get when I attempt to activate my Windows. I retyped the code, used the automated phone service and even contacted Microsoft support via email. Nothing is working for some reason. All Microsoft could really do is tell me to call and talk to someone directly but I thought I would ask around here first and see if anyone might have any idea why this is happening. As always, any help is appreciated.
