    Here is a very good tutorial on how to do a clean installation of XP:  http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html


    Upon your first visit to Windows Update after XP installation and activation, Windows Update will offer you the installation of the WGA Validation Tool, and after that the WGA Notifications Tool.  The WGA Validation Tool is mandatory if you want to download manually from Windows Updates or download nice-to-have programs like Media Player 11, Defender, etc.  The WGA Notifications Tool is optional, you do not have to install it if you do not want to.
