XP Pro Activation 42 digit code needed- help please

When i turn my pc on, it says that it needs to activate the computer even though it was already activated before. i'm not sure if it had anything to do with install SP3 about 2 months ago. anyway as its a downloaded copy, i do not want to phone microsoft and so was wondering if there is a keygen for the 42 digit confirmation ID number???

The only way to get the 42 digit confirmation number is to get on the phone with Microsoft. There is a setting to activate the computer on the internet if it won't activate by the internet, a call to microsoft is the only legal fix for this problem. Using a keygen would subject your computer to possible viruses and would be against the DMCA in the USA.

You may need to call Microsoft and tell them your doing a reinstall and the activation is being rejected. As long as you have the original product key they'll set you up with a new activation key. I had to do this myself and found MS tech staff to be preety responsive. You can get the tech support toll free phone # from the MS site.

Activation key for windows xp pro. have programme

If your computer came with it loaded on it, there should be a small sticker somewhere on the computer with the key.

If you purchased it after you purchased the computer the key should be in the documentation that came with the CD.

Hi Sandeep999,

Although we provide tech support, Product key and activation code replacement is done solely through Microsoft. But Microsoft has miles of web pages to hunt through, finding the right place to do it can be daunting. Here's how to cut through the red tape, most of it anyhow:

Click Here for Microsofts 'Contacting Support' start page. Select your location and follow the prompts to get a phone number to a live human.

Hope this helps
