Because you have a illegal copy?

If you call up MS they will tell you to go here: (I had it come up recently, and that thing said I had activated it too many times, the next day the star didn't come up so went to that link again and it said I ahd a genuine copy (which I do) )

they had a program out at one time you called them up and told them you had a bad copy, they would tell you to send the cd and serial to them and they would give you a free copy, not sure if its still going on or not
