Reactivation of my computer software xp home edition. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have reached the 10 times maximum for xp home activation.

    Due to alot of computer freezing & reinstalation of my geniuin xp home software i have reached the max 10th x activation.

    No I am being told that I have to purchase a new activation code.

    I find this very annoying & I feel that this is wrong.

    Is it still possible to activate my software for xp using a different route ??

    Please try activating your XP installation telephonically, as described in this MS KB article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307890


    Let us know if it worked for you!

    That is exactly what i did,on the off chance & after speaking to someone from microsft...i was put in contact with a voice over   computer,

    I followed the instructions & hey presto, windows was activated.

    Great bit of advice for anyone not knowing the correct protocol.
