Cloned Computer Won't Run WIndows Live Mesh Properly

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I cloned my home computer in order to reinstall a crashed system on my office computer. (I also changed the Win 7 product ID in order to ensure it was unique and legal.) However, Windows Live Mesh now insists that the machine at home and the machine in the office are the same machine, despite obvious hardware and software differences in the two machines.

I uninstalled Windows Live on both machines.  I also removed the ID from the WIndows Live Devices page.  When I reinstall, however, the machine in the office conitiues to insist thnat it is the original machine, rather than the new machine it should be.

Pelase help resolve this.
