wants xp pro activation - wizard does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • My XP suddenly was acting quirky....Shutdown taking long time......windows explorer initial folder expansion taking long time.

    Ran Dell XP CD with Repair feature.

    Then started to get activation prompts. XP Pro is legit!

    Attempted activation wizard...Does not proceed to... next step  to activate via, internet nor modem, nor phone number to supply.

    Looking at forum made me remove IE7, but no change.

    Any ideas

    thank you
