So now its come to it where i cant use my desktop pc now and am in urgent help. Whenevr i try and log in now the 30 days is over and it says activation is ok and logs me back out again saying i need to activate it. Please help is there a way around this without rebooting the pc because i have family photos on there.

    I did that for my sister had to do a reinstallation of her hard drive on to another motherboard cause her's died. You need to call Microsoft and tell them you are doing a reinstallation and they will ask you if this is the only computer this version of wibdows is on and you say yes and then the person will get you to change the key and then he will give you the confirmation code. After that you should be fine.

    If the worst comes to the worst you can click on "Register Online" which will open Internet Explorer. You can then type in "C:\Documents And Settings/Your Name/what ever directory" to get to your photos. I think you can transfer them to a flash drive (Normally F:\.
