Activation issues

    When Win 7 first came out I upgraded from Vista Home Premium 32-bit to Win 7
    Home Premium 64-bit. Upgrade process went fine, and I registered and
    activated the OS.

    Couple of weeks later I added RAM (to take advantage of 64-bit) and Windows
    subsequently decided it was "counterfeit". The only solution that was
    apparent to me --since finding the answer inside Microsoft.com is apparently
    an impossibility-- was to completely reinstall Win 7. This too went fine
    and once again I activated the damn thing.

    Now, again Windows thinks it is counterfeit. This time, I don't want to go
    through the reinstall hassle.

    Is anyone else experiencing the same issues and, if so, what's the Final
    Solution?
