But my Windows XP Pro I have, claims that the activation has been used too many times, and I need to purchase a additional Product key. I own this copy, it came with my PC, and I need this solved quickly. Is there a way I can remove the Activation thing to prevent it from halting my windows after 30 days? Thanks.
not really. keys dont work anymore you gota buy windows. i went through the same thing and once your 30days is up, it like locks up your windows. i got a copy of xp home for 60 bucks new off of ebay! very good deal. got it in about 1 1/2 weeks.
do the registration by phone thing and when it asked if you have had major hardware failure or something like that say yes. they give you an activation key and you're good to go. if you bought it and haven't messed with you'll be good to go.
i got a legal copy from school (Microsoft academic alliance) and i use it on a computer that isn't very stable. so after numerous reinstalls i have to go though this process every time... done it three times so far all with success.
