how can i make my OS windows xp updates to full version


You can make windows xp full version by the following instructions:





1) start > run > "regedit" (without the quotes of course)

2) go to the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents\OOBETimer
...and doubleclick on it. Then change some of the value data to ANYTHING ELSE...delete some, add some letters.....just change it!
now close out regedit.
3) go to start > run >
"%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a"
(again, dont type the quotes)
4) the activation screen will come up, click on register over telephone, then click on CHANGE PRODUCT KEY,
enter in this key: JG28K-H9Q7X-BH6W4-3PDCQ-6XBFJ.

Now you can do all the updates without activating, and the Genuine Microsoft Validation Thing won't bug you no more!!

  3. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version\WPAEvents
  4. In the topic pane, right-click OOBETimer, and then click Modify.
  5. Change at least one digit of this value to deactivate Windows.

having problems activating my windows xp activation key


When you decide to activate your Windows XP, do it by phone rather than online.

If you have a problem entering the codes, you will be directed to a live person who can help you through the process.
