    I have Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Today I was playing WoW and I just randomly got a message saying my Version of Vista is not activated.

    Vista came on my HDD when I bought my acer computer and I've had it for almost nearly a year and have never seen this message. I received the message too a few minutes ago while just searching the internet. Any idea what is going on?

    Try Start > Search > chkdsk /r

    Answer "Y" to the questions and reboot.

    In that case, go to Start > Search and run:

    cmd

    In the command window, type:

    chkdsk /r

    It should ask. Then reboot. This may not work but the same thing has happened to me twice and was solved by chkdsk, so it's worth a try.
