XP home is activated and verified as genuine, but is says it need to activate when I start Windows. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently bought a copy of Windows XP Home (swedish version). I installed it and put in the product key and everything. I had some problems activating it trough internet, I had to speak to a person at Microsoft in Sweden, to be able to activate it.
    When I finally had activaded XP i went ahead to Winwows Update (I have auto updates off), and it could verify my copy as genuine, and download stuff...
    Still however, I get a note when windows starts up, that i need to activate my copy of windows. The strange thing is that this notification is in english (when my copy of XP is in swedish)....

  • Hello Fonografist,

    Thank you for contacting the Windows Genuine Advantage forums. XP Activation Looping is outside of the scope of support we offer and not within the realm of our expertise. However, the following links may be of use to you.

    KB312295 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/312295/en-us

    This article contains information to help you resolve a Windows product activation problem you may be experiencing. Windows may prompt users to activate every time that the computer is started. You experience this problem even if you have already activated Windows. This article describes how to remove a script that may interfere with Windows activation. To do this, you must start the computer in safe mode, modify the Windows registry, and then restore the Windows product activation file. Then, you can reactivate Windows. After you follow these steps, you are no longer prompted to activate Windows when you start the computer.

    If you need further assistance please post your question to the “Discussions in Windows XP General” forum newsgroups for continued resolution located here:  



    Important:  This article contains information about how to modify the registry. Backup your registry before you modify it. Make sure that you know how to restore the registry if a problem occurs.
