Re: reactivating windows xp
Windows Activation usually only kicks in if there has been a major change of hardware or if Windows has been reinstalled, so I am surprised to hear it has popped up after the removal of some malware.
How exactly did you go about removing zlob?
If you can post some more info I'm sure someone can help you.
In the meantime, you might want to try activating over the phone rather than use the automated option. If you speak to someone at Microsoft and explain the situation, they may be able to reset the activation account.
