  • I'm encountering this problem on a system which does not have IE7/8 installed, so that's clearly not the only thing going on; IE6 also displays this message under some circumstances..

    Granted, this is an unusual situation.. a machine went down, we think to lightning, and I moved the drive to a new computer, which caused windows to need activation all over again.  It was not possible to activate, however, thanks to this issue.  For some reason, installing a second instance of XP solved the activation problems of this instance, but evidently it still has internet problems; it even displays that message when I attempt to access the router's http config IP.

  • I recently solved this problem, it was easy if you try and search a URL on the address bar of your internet explorer and it comes up as this

    "The requested look up key was not found in any activation content"

    Follow these instructions to solve this problem

    1. right click on Internet Explorer icon on your desktop (not a short-cut)

    2. click on properties

    3. then click on advanced

    4. then go down to were it says SHOW FRIENDLY URL's and tick the box

    That is it, try your browser now.
