    Anyone else have this problem? I requested my free key for media center and received it from MS. Put it in and it done a couple of restarts. Once logged in. I became deactivated. It replaced my windows key with the media center key. I clicked on activate and luckily. With out me having to do any thing. Something came up and said this could take a few minutes. It replaced the media key back to my windows key and it said activated. But, I still had the watermark build at bottom right on my desktop. Rebooted and its gone now. Seriously. What a pain in the ass. Why would my windows key deactivate just from adding media center?!?! :rolleyes:
