Painlessly Solving my Windows Activation Problem

We've been making some infrastructure improvements around here. One of the changes was an upgrade to VMware Server 2.0. I'm not sure if that was the reason why, or something else, but one of my virtual machines said the hardware had changed too much and that Windows re-activation was required. Unfortunately, I kept getting an error that it couldn't connect with teh activation server.

This KB article was helpful. I chose the third work-around, which was a simple IE configuration setting.
