Windows XP activation help please
  

Hi..
This is my friends computer.
I have installed windows with XP disk. When i try to log on, it ask me for activation but how can i activate it without logging in?
The Error message is:
This copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on. Do you want to activate windows now.
When i logs on it gets log off!
Any help?

Try installing XP all over again formatting your disk.
This may be the best solution.

Thanks, but can i activate it from safe mode?
Or just delete the user so no activation will be asked?

may be this changes can help you in the registry.
1) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFTNT\CurrentVer sion\Winlogon
(change Activation Required value to zero)

2) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrentVersion
(change RegDone value to 1)

Be careful when you make changes to the registry!
Get access to the registry by going into Start > Run > type regedit and press enter.
