    I recently re-formatted my p.c and closed the windows genuine validation tool when it popped up. Where can I find it on my p.c so that I may run it again?

    I can't update on IE without it.

    Thanks.

    Start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->System Tools -> Activate Windows

    Does that work for you? Alternatively, do you have an icon in the notification area on the taskbar, at the bottom right of the screen?

    Oh, thanks for that but I decided to upgrade to Vista.

    That's one way of solving the problem! :p: Glad that you've got it sorted.
