How can I tell if Windows is activated?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Is activation the same as registration? Does activation collect information that is used to contact me? Is activation required? If I activated Windows, why is Windows on my computer non-genuine? Do I need to activate Windows after making a hardware change? Will I ever need to activate Windows on my computer again? Where do I find my Windows product key? Can I use my product key on more than one computer?

Unfortunately, there are no solutions that don't involve having a retail install CD. My install was from a direct download from MS.
Windows 7 Ultimate properly activated on Panasonic W8 laptop.
Get error message stating unable to complete validation process and this results in WIN7 not activating. What if anything can be done.
Have done a native, clean install of this disk on my Dell (I.e. native windows), no problems. Activated fine, daily use for a few months.
Using same media, decided to try installing in a VM under Oracle Virtual Box running under Ubuntu. Install went fine, (I said activate online) windows update, fine, etc. Now a couple of weeks later I get prompted again for activation.
(curiously right after I installed Office 2007 and changed preferences to update all microsoft products). I enter the product code and the response is that this product is only authorized for "updating a prior version".
I love the new Windows 7 on my computer, except one thing. I NEVER use the mouse pad, hate'em. I buy a reg. mouse and use it. The mouse pad is located in such a place that I frequentlybrush it and mess up w/e I am typing at the time.
I tried to disable the mouse pad, but can't. The option to do so is never activated, I just see where the button is, but can't click it. I even uninstalled the driver software, but thecomputer detects the mousepad and makes it functional again.
I just want to be able to type my long papers for school without having to worry about accidentally brushing the mouse pad. I wan't it shut off.
