It is activated correctly.

This error shows up, it activates correctly, works fine for a few days, then we get the error again.

I would recommend call Microsoft directly to get this straightened out at: 1 (888)-571-2048. When it comes to legitimate business with corporate software, always go to Microsoft Directly.

I would try reimaging this computer, as it does not appear to be activating properly hense it will try again after 3 days to activate it again. You can try to do a os repair to see if it will solve the activation problem, but I doubt it will. You may save more time by reimaging the system then trying to solve this problem by waiting for someone to come up with a solution.

There is a lot of propitiatory software on it that is tough to reinstall so we really don't want to re image it unless we have to.
