Activation Problem Loop...

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

I activated Windows XP (home edition) on my computer about 2 months ago.
About 5 days ago when logging in it would say "Windows needs to be activated
in 3 days. To activate now click yes" I click yes I get a pop-up that says
"Your windows has already been activated. Click ok to continue" I click ok
and it logs me off... It's been about 5 days now, and I can't seem to get
around it. Any help it greatly appreciated.

    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.

    I can't get to the start menu, when I start in safe mode it still doesn't let
    me log on, it says "This Windows must be activated before you can log on.
    Windows cannot be activated in safe mode. Please restart your computer in
    normal mode."
