I had to perform a repair install on my XP Home Edition and now I can't even log on. It asks me to activate the OS after I enter my pass but then the activator window opens stating that it's already activated!? If I click OK it just logs me off and the pattern repeats itself. The only reason I need to get on XP again is to backup some settings. I really could care less about using it on this machine ever again but this last little problem is annoying. Any help?
