Windows activation can't connect to internet

  1. Windows XP (Home) activation isn't connecting to the internet, it just says it can't get a connection. Every other program works fine. Could the firewall be blocking it? And to know if that's it or not, what program would I add as an exception to let Windows activation through the firewall?

    You could temporarily turn off the firewall to see if that is the problem.

    This is mostly caused by network problems, try to reinstall drivers, or stick with telephone to MS for activation number.
