Hi Folks. Back again. After a weekend of problems and reinstalling, etc. I now find that my XP PRO on startup is grumbling about Product Key invalid...contact Anti-Piracy Team, etc. All balls of course but the site that the advice window points me towards - piracy@microsoft.com - has heaps of information on many subjects but I'm damned if I can see a mention of piracy. Any clues? I would like to let off a little steam at someone.......
