I bought the Windows 8 Pro $15 upgrade when it came out. I was emailed the product key and it worked. Windows said it was activated and whatnot. Now, when I go to the activation center it says that Windows isn't activated. When I attempt to reactivate, it says the key is working, but when I click next I get this:



What is going on? Did someone steal my product key or something? I don't think anyone knows my email password. I haven't told anyone it and it is really difficult to guess. (Used random word generator plus numbers.)

Thanks,

EDIT: For the record, I have not actually exceeded the unlock limit. I have only used the key once.

Alright. It is genuine. I am not stupid enough to ask for help with cracked software.

It wouldn't be the first time somebody asked for help with cracked software, so don't take it personally.

Calling Microsoft is your only choice.
