Server 2008 R2 Trial Activated, but Activation Pop Up still appears on Start up

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I have a server running Server 2008 R2 Trial then activated with legitimate key ,but it is still receiving an activation countdown pop up on start up. When time runs out will I be locked out? How can I remove this message? Why is this happening?

Thanks in advance!
