    Yes, the installation is of Windows XP Pro - and the Key in use is a Dell OEM_SLP Key which would be correct, if your machine had come pre-installed with Pro.
    Since your Key on the sticker is for Home edition, you have to have a Home edition installation for it to be valid.
    The most significant difference between Home and Pro is the ability to join Domain Networks (if you don't know what one is, you don't need it <g>)
    You can try contacting Dell, and see if they have the Recovery disks available for your machine - or try restoredisks.com if not. These will restore your computer to ex-factory condition wiping all data, so back up to external media first!
    You'll then need to update the system and install updated Anti-Virus software before reinstalling your apps and reloading the data.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
     
    Also - for what version and edition of Windows is your computer licensed, according to the COA sticker on the case?
