follow this microsoft guide to activate: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307890
also make sure you are connected to the internet when activating and have the required privileges


I'm very surprised that you are still being asked to activate Windows. Usually when it activated once that's it. However how you will know if it activated or not is to go to "Start-Accessories-System Tools-Activate Windows. Also proof that it is activated is that it is still working after the 30 day period. Most of the functionality will stop working if it isn't.
