Using Parts of XP that work Till the Good Copy arrives RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I.m using the parts of this broken copy of XP that do work to learn my way around the OS, and there are a few things that install I need for the classes I'll be taking...might as well learn them in the meantime. It it brings up 2 questions. Although when I registered/activated this copy of XP I used my real name and personal info, as a part of my home-brewed security strategy, After doing that, I wipe delete the drive with a powerful shredder, then reinstall but use an alias with all false information to keep websites from sucking the real personal info from your drive while you read their articles. Really cuts way down on spam, and makes ID theft harder. I'm about to press the activate buttom again on an aliased profile. If they ask for information at MS I'll give them the right info. Could this create any problems for MS with me?
