Can't log into my server. Windows product activation error
Posted on 2012-09-12
I have a windows 3003 server box that was running fine until i installed windows office on it. I was having issues with MS word, so i went to uninstall it and did a REPAIR. the repair finished and it asked me to reboot. Once it came back up, i press Alt+Ctrl+Delete, type in my login and i get a windows product activiation error that says A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error code: 0x8007007e.
I tried RDP, i tried a console login, i can get only get in through safe mode. I tried to uninstall Office in safe mode, but it won't allow me to. I am assuming its related to office, but only bc it was the last thing i did before it stopped working.
