    Hello MrRitwik,

    By default, Windows 8 requires you to enter your product key number during installation to activate it. If you have a Windows 8 installed on your computer, then it should already be activated. What happened for why your copy isn't activated?

    You could use the tutorial below to enter you product key number to activate Windows 8 online.

    You can use the same method in the tutorial below for Windows 7 to activate Windows 8 by phone.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

Two problems really. 1. Maybe I've never noticed it before but all of a sudden I keep seeing the popup for windows 8 activating again. Just seems strange that it would be trying to activate again even though it shows activated on 6/23/2013. 2. This problem is a little different. Different...
