On 11-19-2012 I installed Windows 8 Pro WMC and activated with the WMC key, always auto updated, no problems. On 01-10-2013 I installed COD Black Ops 2 along with Steam on the same system, and noticed it had become deactivated. I had backed up my activation with Advanced Tokens Manager, so I tried to restore my activation and got an error, so I rebooted and tried again, no luck. I decided to reboot in safe mode and try that but forgot about no F8 with Windows 8 until I clicked to restart, rookie move, I know. I let it go ahead and boot up and was going to tell it to reboot in safe mode then, but decided to check my activation one more time, still not activated. I clicked to activate and it and activated, now it shows up as Activated on 1-10-2013. Any thoughts anyone? Maybe I just got lucky and hit M$ severs when they where busy.
