I agree with the post by "mikeloeven"

Please see this from the Welcome Guide
Post your Question Enter a short but descriptive title. Help us to help you! Use meaningful titles and descriptions, NOT just "help me". Describe your issues fully. List any issues and relevant error messages. Detailed posts get better (and faster) replies. For additional help on posting, click here.

Additionally if this

Windows gave me another.

means that YOU SAY that Microsoft gave you another key. I suggest if it still reports Windows as invalid. You recontact Microsoft.

That said and please do not think I am pre-judging the issue, perhaps your next point of reference is the person who sold you XP, if it was as your post tends to suggest a recent purchase.
