Hi There,

We are fortmatting every one of our pcs in our house - its the holidays so I have some extra time- with our new server system that we have but i have done it on my non internet pc to get started and when i try to call to activate it, the line keeps ringing and eventually will hang up.

I have called both on my landline and Cellphone. Its Windows XP Professional that i'm activating. the phone number is 0800 676334 which is the same number I havbe always used to activate.

I tryed yesterday and it didnt work so i assumed the automatic service was closed because of it being a pubic holiday. Howe ver just tryed again and it didnt work.
