  • It seems you've some issue with UI of Activation program. If you have the Windows Aero enabled, try to disable it and give it a try. If it's off by default or problem still exist, use Windows classic interface.

    Good luck

  • If the OS was preinstalled from an OEM like HP, Dell, Gatewate etc... it should not require activation. But if the OS is not showing as "Genuine" in the System Properties, at the bottom of the screen (shortcut key <Windows> + <pause>) and you have a valid key on the system, you may need to contact Microsoft to get the OS activated.
