As long as you are withing that period, if you block your registry that key then Windows cannot write to it anymore. You do have a choice and you won't go to jail for doing it. Open office looks like a fine product. There are some systems I need to call twice. Be very careful when you download it. A new window will open.

After the restart I now can get on the internet but downloading any other software hasn't worked. The software has already been activated.
I have a Windows install and I virtualize that same Windows install within Linux. I'm not aware of any supported method of fixing the install except to reinstall from a properly slipstreamed location. However, the computer stays stuck for a few moments and then I get a blue screen of death: Stop C000021a fatal system error The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x80000004 0x00000000 0x00000000. Right after that screen, you will see a list of Windows installations that setup found. I had gone through multiple cycles of install and was still going against the problem. I am so pleased those companies failed in their attempt; part of the failure cause was bad implementation but also customers ire.

It is really frustrating that I payed for a copy of windows xp and now it has stopped working and I lost all my installed programs.

Any help would be much appreciated. All my work is on this laptop. I don't have a phone and never will have to try to activate from phone. I tried your method before the 30 days were up.

What happens if I have no access to a phone for a while?? Hacking is sometimes a mouse-cat game. I did take note of your enthusiasm for Linux. Instead it only runs after successful user log in. I used telephone activation in the end, which wasn't as painful as I expected it to be.
Activate your copy of Windows. Mike should be more at home there. Call up Dell and try to get one. For some reason, I got a desktop. Have you actually read through it, or are you just saying you have? Thanks for catching that guys, it is WordPresss formatting the code, a simple double slash fixed the problem.
