activate windows xp update problem (Same as Frannie2892 's thread) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have upgraded my current XP pro version to a valid version 

    After power-up, on the account screen, I can choose either my wife's account or mine. Upon clicking I get the desktop and immediately the pop-up window:

    "this copy of windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on. Do you want to activate Windows now?"

    I hit 'Yes' and after some time I receive the message:

    "This copy has already been activated"

    and subsequently I am logged off.


    Please let me know how to solve this problem.
