Does anyone else have this problem?

After between 10 to 15 days, when I run Alcohol 120%, it requires that I reactivate.

No hardware has changed.

Oh, and I do have a full licensed install of Alcohol 120%. No cracks or #####.

It's annoying as hell. I have to go out, set the new activation active and delete the other.

This only started happening after I installed Vista 32-Bit Ultimate.

Are you sure that the problem has to do with Alcohol? Do you change the number or the name e.t.c. of the virtual drives from time to time? You know, Windows detect them as real ones. Anyway, for a start try reinstalling Alcohol( uninstalling and reinstalling after rebooting) and wait to see if the problem persists.
You can also apply for access to the Customer's only forum were you'll get priority support. Just PM an Administrator with the email that you used when purchasing Alcohol and the desired username and password.

Can you post a complete copy of your System Report from within Alcohol? Perhaps something there will shed light on the situation. If you don't want to post in the forums, you can PM it to me, or e-mail it to the Support Team directly.

You may have hit the nail on the head. I have both a USB stick that I use, but I also have an external drive (ESATA) that I have for external storage to take back and forth to work.

The ESATA drive probably causes hardware changes which are picked up by Alcohol...

This is a problem, and I can't believe no one else has had an issue with this. Maybe it's only a Vista issue.
