    i just installed windows xp home edition. i have not had problems at all before installing. i activate windows online everytime with no problems. this time i tried to activate online it says "registration key used too many times..." and that i should enter a different key. the key i use is the one that came with the disc i bought, so how can i possibly enter a DIFFERENT CODE THAN THAT ONE? i only have the one that came with the disc. i don't own a phone to activate through the phone.  here's the diagnosis:

    How often have you activated this machine? - usually you can reckon on at least ten activations on the same hardware before MS complains about it. Ten activations in 4 years could be considered excessive.
    Your ONLY option is to phone-activate, and explain to the rep what's happened. They may give you another Key, or they may not, depending on the activation history

  • yeppers, you are precisely correct! i've done around 6-8 full installations of windows XP-home in the past year approximately (grr, viruses and stuff, so i figured to start off fresh again each time). thank you for the advice and taking the time to reply. i will wait the next 25 days or so until my user time runs out, and give my key another try (and reinstall XP again), and if it does not work this next  time i will give that phone number a call from wherever i can.

     

    take care,

    regards,

    from phil

    You should either take more care of your system, and/or create an image of your freshly-installed-and-updated-system with an imaging tool. This can then be restored easily and will be pre-activated (assuming you activated before creating the image). It save a LOT of time and hassle!

  • Hello terminalrecords,

    DriveImageXML is a popular free disk imaging utility.  Popular commercial titles for this category of utility also include Norton Ghost and Acronis TrueImage.

    Business editions of Windows 7 have a disk imaging utility built into the operating system.
