    Continuity is lost after needing to reinstall Windows XP. Name of computer changed.

    Refuses to be hub. Does not seem to recognize itself under its "old name."

    CHanging the name of the PC should not affect the ability of making it a hub in the OneCare Circle. Once you have made a hub n the Circle, you'll want to remove the old entry for the old named PC, since you reinstalled OneCare with a different PC name. It doesn't need to recognize itself - it does need to be activated with the subscription LiveID, though. If you need help with this,
