    If you have original Win XP Cd then rather than looking for the illegal ways get in touch with Microsoft India. They have 24 hrs toll free numbers. You may also contact your local MS dealer I think they can provide you with a more legal solution.
    lol

    they do hav toll numbers. they never take the phone calls. i blive ur cd-key has been leaked to someone else or u used it in another computer.Bcoz, u can activate 25 times for oem. Use phone activation , thatz the best method.

    How is the experience of calling MS toll-free number? Personally, when I tried to activate my Win XP copy, I tried 3 or 4 days at various hours without being able to connect to them... Finally, I got a net connection on the computer and activated over the internet...

    Funny.... I never had any trouble with windows updates, or service pack installations, or activation with my XP so far... as a matter of fact I didn't activate it yet since last 2 years :) And I am still happy with IE7, WMP11 etc. on my XP... I wonder whats the secret !!! :D :D

    Please don't ask for cracks and warez. Call up MS and inform about your problem. Or call up your vendor and ask for the solution.

    I called them quite a number of time sduring office hours and every time I got an answer promptly. No problem. I called the toll free always. I also activated using the same no.

    i back up activation

    THIS IS NOT ILLGAL PROCEDURE ITS JUST A BACK UP PROCEDURE SO DONT GET CONFUSED FOR WHAT EVER I POSTED .


    1. Double-click My Computer
    2. Double-click on the "C" drive
    3. Go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder (you may have to click on the link that says "Show The contents of this folder")
    4. Find the files "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" and copy them to a safe location. You can copy them on a floppy drive or burn it onto a CD or DVD.
    5. After you have reinstalled Windows XP on your reformatted hard drive, click "No" when asked if you want to go ahead and go through the activation process
    6. Reboot your computer into SafeMode (you can either press F8 as Windows is booting up to see the Windows Advanced Options menu and select SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal or follow the instructions in Starting Windows XP in SafeMode
    7. Double-click My Computer
    8. Double-click on the "C" drive
    9. Go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder (you may have to click on the link that says "Show The contents of this folder")
    10. Find the file "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" (if it exists) and rename them to "wpadbl.new" and "wpabak.new"
    11. Copy your original "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" files from your floppy disk, CD or DVD into the C:\Windows\System32 folder
    12. Restart your system (if you followed the directions in Starting Windows XP in SafeMode you may need to go back into MSCONFIG to turn off booting into SafeMode)

    Voila! Your Windows XP operating system is now reinstalled on your reformatted hard drive and you are all activated without having to actually go through the product activation process!

    Remember though. This won't work for transferring activation information from one computer to another or if you alter the hardware because the information contained in your "wpa.dbl" file will not match the configuration of the computer. This trick is only for reinstalling Windows XP on the exact same computer after formatting the hard drive.


    its legal As MICROSOFT says u can back up any think .
