I have ordered the screensaver, but nothing happens.
This may be result of anti-spam e-mail server tools activity or misspelled e-mail address on order form. Try to contact us again from another e-mail address or via support online form. We will contact you soon: we receive reports on each processed order.
I enter my key code and screensaver says that activation failed.
It would be better to use the "copy & paste" method while entering the code instead of typing it manually because misspelling is possible. If nothing helps, please, contact us.
I activated the screensaver, but it still shows reminder window.
Probably, the screensaver could not store your registration information into the Windows registry. Some kinds of software, like antivirus, antispyware and even firewall tools may block parts of registry to prevent them from damaging by malicious software. Try disabling them for the time of screensaver activation. Later, you may safely enable these tools again.
