A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error Code: 0x80004005. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Finally tried to upgrade my Windows 2000 Pro to Windows XP Pro so I use something more recent than IE6.
    I got the Windows XP Pro SP2 OEM cd from our IT and tried to upgrade.
    Now when I attempt to log in I get a popup with the title "Windows Product Activation" and the content as shown above in the subject.
    This happens when logging in with my own account (in Administrators group) or with Administrator account itself.
    This happens when booting regularly or in safe mode with networking.
    Any suggestions?
