For some reason or another, after I installed Nod32 (AVG stopped releasing AVG free ) my uTorrent always seemed to crash during the night, and it dumps a crash log to some file. I put uTorrent in Nod's exemptions but it still crashed.
Anyways today I decided to try McAfee instead, so I uninstalled Nod and installed McAfee this morning, then after I restarted my computer McAfee claimed that it had found something, so I tried to delete the file but before I could my computer restarted
After the reboot I tried to log on to windows to find that I needed to activate it before I could log on to my user account...... ->
I've never had to activate windows before, or even use a workaround for it, I've just gotten lucky with the releases I guess.
I'm writing this from a linux boot cd, if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great.
I'm running Windows XP SP3
Edit - Solved thanks to a wonderful guide found here -
