Okay, I have read every post I could find on how to "fix" this blasted problem, but NOTHING WORKS! I am running Windows XP Pro, have more than enough ram, and room on my HDD. (And I use Firefox.) I have NEVER had a problem with activation, but as of late (the past week or so,) every time I click the activation key, I get the "invalid key" pop-up. I made sure my firewalls were off, EVERYTHING you people suggested, but NOTHING works I tell you. It seems the activation doesn't like the fact I am on Dial-up, (something I CANNOT help, as my cable modem has died,) because, as I stated before, I have NEVER had this problem! Is there ANYTHING else I could do? (Besides getting my cable modem back, har-har.) Waiting an hour for ONE download at a time is getting ridiculous, and I'm getting frustrated missing out all the time. :(
YES my firewall is off, YES my anti-virus is off, NO I do not use proxies, YES I have cleared my browser cache AND temp files etc, etc, etc, ETC!
