Yeah - Proberbly. I have HEARD that windows lets you activate it on 3 PC's, but then, you wont be able to activate for another 6 months (They clear their Activation DB every 6 months, i think)

Next time you get a STOP error, post the full code here so we can diagnose the problem properly. Everything so far is just guesswork, and it cant be answered properly till we get the code
