    I booted up my spare comp the other day and this came up,

    Windows product activation. This copy of windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on.

    How can I correct this?

    I keep trying, but no go. It just goes to the select user screen.

    You either went over the 30 day "grace" period they give you to activate once installed, or changed some major hardware and went over the 3 day period they give you to activate after that. Either way, you need to re activate

    it should come up with the 1800 number for MS. Or try activating online.
