XP just deactivated after latest update
I've just come back from holidays, and have turned on my desktop... initially it was running fine, however it must've installed some new updates in the background, because when I restarted... it decided to deactivate itself and let me know that my '30 days' has expired, despite activating Windows a long time ago, when I first installed it.
While I can probably just make a call to Microsoft and get it reactivated over the phone, I'm sort of confused (and very angry) as to why the windows update randomly deactivated my copy of Windows. I couldn't find any similar cases on Google, but my friend had the exact same problem while I was away on holidays. Thanks in advance for your help!
