Hello everybody :D

Frequent lurkers/helpful people may know me as the idiot who tried to install Ubuntu next to Windows and screwed my system up. That's fixed. I'm not posting about that.

What I am posting about is this: about an hour ago, I got a random window saying that my product key was invalid (This is after it being validated and functional for about a week and a half). It prompted me to either use the automated phone service or enter a valid product key. Fortunately there was a cancel button on the window, so I ignored it. My question is, should this window pop up again, is there something I should do, or just continue to ignore it?

Things you may need to know:
->I have two Windows 7 licenses: The one that came pre-installed on the computer I'm using now, and the one on the disk that I bought for my old computer (which is still running that copy of Win7)
->After my computer crashed the other week, I had to use the disk on my new computer to re-load Windows, but it wouldn't let me use the code that came with the disk. I had to use the code on the bottom of my laptop.

Any comments, suggestions, or emergency warnings would be highly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance for your help.

If it's the laptop on which you needed to run the re-install than you would be best off just booting into the recovery partition on the laptop.
