Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
My friend has a ''cracked'' copy of windows xp and he looked online to find a way to make it ''genuine''. He was trying to do this because he wants to upgrade to service pack 2, In the steps given for this process he was told to change some data in the registry editor. Needless to say the process DID NOT work, but was successful in causing MAJOR PROBLEMS in his computer. His graphics cards won't work and there are icons missing in his control panel to name a few of the problems. He tried to go to the system restore option, but the computer will not allow the previous restore date to be used. It doesn't even show up on the calendar. He is a HUGE gaming freak and is flipping out because he cannot use any of his games. Please help me to help him!
The only thing I can offer is make a folder on the C:\ my oldxp files and move all your files into this and boot into windows cd from bois and go through the process off installing windows wizard and when you com to the option of format just leave alone then use the setup files directory will delete the windows folder contentents and alter My Documents folder and the Program Files folders and install windows next you will come to the activation seting skip this and get your motherboard drivers installed and your net installed then download Emule then search for cracking software on this then download them but have Avg inastalled as this will bring in virus's and use these cracks to have your windows genuine then make a backup of hdd with an imaging software and install service pack 2 then take another snap shot of hdd when all is well.
