Subject: XP Pro Activation After Windows Update - Error Code 0x800

After connecting to windows update the other evening and downloading WGA &
IE7 along with other updates my computer asked me to activate windows when it
re-started.

It could not connect to the internet now for some reason so I used telephone
activation.

I then typed in the activation code and the computer returned error code:
Problem with Windows Activation : Error Code 0x8004050a and computer logs me
out.

When checking through "Windows Update.log" it seems to keep finding 3
persisted download jobs. Finding 15 and restoring them failing on the
following :

Service: Warning: GetUserTokenFromSessionId failed with Error 800704dd for
Session 0 and keeps looping through this until the reported failure above.

Please don't give me the following advice :

1. Contact MS - As I've got a support number and they have pointed me here
or KB.

2. Try starting in safe mode - I've tried that but it still asks for
activation

3. Re-Installing XP Pro - For some reason it will not start my XP Pro disk
even with the 1st boot device set to CD-ROM. It does start up my old laptops
XP Home Edition disk thus allowing me to go into Restore but even though I
did create a restore point prior to updating cannot get rstrui.exe to run.

4. Try posting on WGA forum - They claim the problem is nothing to do with
them. Although there are similar posts going back 10 months there.

5. Try posting in IE7 forum - same as answer 4 above.

6. Tell me to install XP Home then run the XP Pro as I've acquired mutiple
devices since buying this laptop 5 years ago and don't want to re-load all
the drivers.

7. My copy of windows XP Pro is genuine. I do have a COE.

8. The computer had been running quite happily for the last 5 years before
this set of updates.
