A WET Challenge entry. Thought that I would go for something clean and simple this time.
Today’s Gratitude Item: Cheap chocolate. Managed to get my favourite chocolate at $2.50 per slab compared with the regular price of $3.69. As they say, “everyone loves a bargain” 🙂
On a not so happy note, after updating my computer last night, it now comes up with a “you are not running a genuine version of microsoft” message when I start up. Of course I am using genuine XP software that came preinstalled on my computer and I have the COA to prove it.
I spent the better part of one and a half hours filling out Microsoft’s form / taking photos of my COA etc only to be told at the end of the process that the ordering process was broken and to try again later!
I had to fill out a “counterfeit” form as this was the only way I could see to get a new key / CD / whatever to get rid of the problem.
Needless to say, I emailed Microsoft and complained. This is insane. I am sure that there are plenty of people like me with valid systems and COA’s who are now looking at an error message everytime they start up their computers because Microsoft has dropped the ball!
What can I say but “Aaaaargh!!!!”
