This is due to the Product Key that has been entered is fake or invalid. The operting system will not tell you if it is a real key until the activation is attempted. I would suggest gaining a valid geniune copy of Microsoft Windows XP to remove the counterfit software icon.
I'm sorry you find yourself in tis perdiciment. Software counterfitting hurts more than the manufacturer or owner of the intelectual rights, in this case, it hurt you.
You should have resourse through the vendor where you obtained this copy of Windows. Be prepared - some will say you are a participant and you knew what you were getting. Others may be more sympathetic. Depends on who and where you got this copy. Also, there is the issue of locating the vendor and proving they sold you the bad copy. If I were the seller (I AM NOT THE SELLER) I'd be long gone by the time you knocked on my door!
Microsoft has a program to get through this problem. It boils down to you paying for a legitimate license which should allow you to use what you have ... but ... if you are going to do this, you might as well get the real thing yourself at the store or web site of your choosing.
