Tips for a great answer:
You must have an authorised (legal copy) of windows xp.
Registering Windows XP enables Microsoft to notify you of essential program updates, security issues and available program patches.
Although registration is optional, you are required to first validate and activate your software to ensure that it is not a pirated copy.
Windows XP has a built-in function that will lock a non-activated genuine Microsoft product after it has run for 30 days
From the Start menu, click "All Programs," then "Activate Windows."
A blue window will appear with a picture depicting a set of keys in the top-left corner, and a message saying "Let's Activate Windows."
Click the topmost radio button marked "Yes, let's activate Windows now."
Click the white "Next" button on the lower-right corner of the window and follow the instructions to activate your copy of Windows XP.
The final blue window of the activation process will be marked "Register With Microsoft?" Click the white "Yes" button at the lower-right corner.
A new pop-up window marked "Collecting Registration Data" will appear.
Fill in the form by typing your personal details into the sections provided.
At the foot of the form you will find two blank white squares followed by messages asking whether you wish to receive special offers and promotional material from Microsoft.
Click on one or both of the white squares if you wish to participate; if not, leave them blank. Click the white "Next" button in the lower right corner of your screen.
A "Thank You" message will appear. Click the white "OK" button in the lower-right corner to complete the Windows XP registration process.
Hope this helps.
