Hi all! Could anybody prompt me what is wrong?
Every time when I switch off my computer I need to activate my copy of Windows. That's why I have to go it into the sleep mode every time. Really I don't know the reason of it! My copy even has a licence. Don't know what the reason is! Help me if you can!!!
Windows details: Windows XP SP2 Home Edition.
Any help will be very appreciated!
Best regards!

Hi George XP
First of all Welcome To Geeks To Go Have you made any changes to your System lately as this is one of the reasons you'll be prompted to Reactivate your copy of Windows XP.

It sounds like you have activated it to many times. If you choose the Telephone option you can call up Microsoft with a LEGIT key they will give you the code to make it work again. I think you can only activate it 3 times ever over the internet before you have to start calling them. Hope this helps!

Also safe mode is available when you can't get in by the activation issue.

The only thing which was happened with my system was a malware or smth like that(win32) I don't remember what exactly! So after that I downloaded Norton Antivirus and scanned with it in the safe mode. It takes me several times and even a couple of days. Also I downloaded SpywareTerminator but it couldn't find anything. So I don't know what else! Any suggestions?

Best regards!
