Click on Vista Start button and key in Cmd in Start Search box.
Press on Ctrl-Shift-Enter to open Command Prompt with administrative credentials (equivalent to Run as Administrator).
In the Command Prompt, type the following command and press Enter when done: slmgr -rearm or you can use sysprep /generalize
Reboot the computer.
