unable to activate after installing total protection 2011

I installed Total Protection 2011 from a disc, but I am unable to activate.  I have windows vista and internet explorer 8.  I uninstalled IE9 to get Total Protection to work correctly,  but I have a pop up saying "activating your product - please wait while we connect to"  It doesn't connect.  The only way I can clear this pop up is to shut down my computer.
