If they re-installed windows, the version of Windows was probably a pirated copy.
You may have to buy a new copy of Windows XP. Microsoft is really cuttiing down on piracy.
I'm not sure if we can assist you on this matter without a genuine copy of windows. If you still have your original Cd-key, you may be able to use it, I think that is legal.
