When I try to boot up I get an error message saying "A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer Error code 0x80090019"

Prior to this happening I was messing around with trying to get some old programs to work on Windows XP.

I can boot to the safe mode but it won't allow me to do a system restore.

Any ideas?

SYMPTOMS

When you start Microsoft Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:
A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error code: 0x80070002.


CAUSE

This issue can occur if one of the following conditions is true:

• The default security provider in Windows XP has been changed.

• The system drive letter has changed.

The security provider issue has been reported with Dell computers on which the Dell Assistant software is installed.

NOTE This issue can be caused by any software that changes the default security provider. It is not limited to Dell computers or to the Dell Assistant software.


WORKAROUND

Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To work around this issue, use the appropriate method.

Reset the default security provider in Windows XP

To reset the default security provider in Windows XP, delete the relevant registry keys in the Windows registry. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Start the computer. Press the F8 key during startup to start the computer in Safe mode.

2. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).

3. Delete the following registry keys in the Windows registry:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers

4. Quit Registry Editor.

5. Restart the computer.


Reset the drive letter of the system drive

Use Registry Editor to change the drive letter of the system drive back to its original value. Edit the following registry key to change the value of the system drive:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

For additional information and steps detailing the exact procedure to rename the system drive letter, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

I tried that prior - When I go into the registry those keys don't seem to present so I can't delete them. Any other ideas. Thanks
