Reactivating windows xp

I had "zlob dns changer" in my system,that is now sorted but I have 2 days to reactivate windows and when I try to do so it says I have activated it to many times. I'm confused as I only activated it once and Microsoft checked that it was genuine at that point.I really cannot afford to buy another copy of windows Is there a way round this

    thankyou guys for such quick response! This zlob stopped me from restoring, stopped windows from updating, changed a lot of things in the registery (mostly microsoft entries)and it disabled avg and msn messenger I used superantispyware to sort this pesky thing out,unfortunatly my pc is still rather a messbut the fact that I'm being given the message saying I have activated windows to many times is the real worry

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.

    Two people have suggested you try activating over the phone.

    I see you've rated this advice as 'thanks for trying' (the solution provides some help but does not solve the problem) but don't make any mention in your reply about actually trying it.

    Did you try it? Did Microsoft refuse to activate the software when you spoke to them? If so, what did they say? What reason did they give?

Can I reactivate a deleted yahoo e-mail account, if so, how?


If your yahoo account was just deactivated (due to non-use or your deletion attempt) within last 90 days, you can reactivate it by logging in again. However, once deleted fully or beyond the deactivated 90 days period, there is no way you can recover that account. However, you can create a new account with that name.
