I am not sure why you don't have that unless it is one of those Dells
with a generic activation someone spoke of earlier here. (or a bootleg
copy).

It's a Toshiba that I bought with 7-32 Home Premium already installed;

How to get rid of the greyed out activate windows? This pops every week at different times of the day. Windows is activated in settings. I am not a computer whiz. Just an old lady. Needs to be explain in easy to understand terms how to get rid of this nuisance.


I sorry for posting here. This was a serious question. I realize now I posted in the wrong group. I don't have windows xp any longer. Thank you for answering back.

Oops, sorry. Maybe that's why I haven't got that option! Sorry again;
wrong newsgroup. (FWIW, MGADiag seems to run fine in 7.)
