Vista Reactivation?

I built my new system last week and installed Vista Ultimate 32 without a problem. Everything worked perfectly and the Windows Activation went without a hitch. I updated Windows without a problem and then over the weekend, I updated my motherboard drivers and now Vista thinks it is a new system and wants me to activate again. So of couse when I try to do this it tells me my Key code is already being used and tells me I now have days to enter a valid code...

Is there anyway around this other than trying to call Microsoft?

A side not, I also deleted my desk top recycle bin. How do I get it back on the desk top?
