Has anyone using Windows XP (Home or Pro Editions), Windows Server Edition(s) or Windows Media Edition, received a voluntary Registration renewal of a Licensed Edition of the above Microsoft created software? I just received a reactivation notice from Microsoft to activate my license key because of a hardware change that was made. The only thing I have changed was my wireless connection and upgraded my videocard in the past year. I had to give Microsoft my new address (required) and then I tried to connect directly over the internet which didn't work because I use Firefox. I then had to phone a given toll free number and contact the automated operator and voice the posted new activation code. Now my OLD Windows XP is verified and legit, according to Microsoft, and Microsoft has my address and email (required) up-to-date. Does this not sound like another ploy by Microsoft to dominate the software developing industry. I am so p'd off at Microsoft , for once again , interfering with my life. Please post your opinions, thanks.
