Now that I've solved my PC's hardware problems, naturally, I'm now having a software problem. Windows has started telling me that my Vista product key isn't valid, after having this PC for nearly two years. It asks for a product key, I enter the one that my PC came with, and it says it's not valid. Operating system product keys don't expire, so I don't know what the problem is. It's also replaced my wallpaper with a blank black background that says:

Windows Vista ™
Build 6002
This copy of Windows is not genuine


Is there a virus that can create taskbar popups startup prompts and otherwise mimic a regular Windows program? I'm suspicious it could be a virus that wants me to buy a fake product key to get my credit card number, but I don't know what I'm doing anymore, so I thought one of you could help me out.

Never mind, Windows is fucking stupid.

Nope, still fucked up.

I think you should call microsoft. When i did it because it said my key wasn't valid, they were surprisingly helpful.

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

I think it's sorted this time. I did a bunch of shit, asked some guys on their forums, did a bunch of diagnostic checks, and it looks solid for right now. I'd still like to know what caused it, though.

My new motherboard fucked up my license for Vista. I had to use the secondary license.
