I did a virus scan with avast and I moved antiwpa.dll to the virus chest. Now when I boot up XP Home it gets to the welcome screen and then tells me I need to activate windows. I click "yes" to active and I try to go through the process but it can't access the internet. The ethernet cable I use works fine on every other computer, so that's not the problem. I also can't restore the .dll file from the avast chest because when I'm viewing the log I can't select any of the entires but I don't know why I can't select them... Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Thanks for the reply, but I already googled "antiwpa.dll" and didn't really find anything that could help me fix my problem, I found this: "The program detects antiwpa as Trojan.I.Stole.Windows. Actually, it's a patch to validate Windows." So I assume that the antiwpa.dll that I moved to the chest was used to validate windows and that's why I'm getting the window asking me to activate windows. I'm doing a repair install right now to see if that fixes anything. <nvm, repair wasn't an option :)

Buy a copy of Windows, do a fresh install and stop using pirated software.

Okay, I found another XP CD and the repair option is available on it so I'm doing that now. It's not my PC, just a friends. If the repair option doesn't work though, then I'll just do a fresh install.

Edit: Repair install didn't help. I'm just going to install a new copy of XP.
