hello all. when i start up my pc, i have windows xp, and when i log onto
my profile, it tells me that windows must be activated by microsoft and
asks me if i want to activate it. f i say yes, it goes to a screen that
says "windows is already activated. hen it returns back to the profile
screen, saves my settings and wants me to log in again. If i say no, it
just stays at the profile screen. Either way, it will never direct me to
my desktop. It will always return back to the profile screen. Please
help.

Possible Resolution:

Boot into "Safe Mode" by pressing (F8) during a reboot.

Go to Start > Run and type: regsvr32 regwizc.dll , and hit enter.
Then go again to Start > Run and type: regsvr32 licdll.dll , and hit enter again.

Apparently, and I can't say how, the above files became unregistered.

This simple fix.

Start the computer in safe mode… not safe mode with networking – networking will not allow you to log on due to not being activated but plain safe mode will.
Click start, run in the run command line type this in exactly
rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobebnk
Note the comma and capitalization have to be included.
This will give you a new 30 day activation grace period.
Now restart the computer start windows normally.
Now you are able to uses windows but it still will not activate. To fix this you must download IE8.
Note IE7 will work but you might as well go ahead and update all the way to IE8 to make sure there are no further issues.
Once IE8 is installed you will be able to activate windows as normal.
If for some reason you do not see the activation icon – it is located Start-all programs-accessories-system tools
If you do not see it there type this into the run command
oobe/msoobe /a
