Windows activation loop bug XP Pro

Hello,
I am having trouble with keeping XP Pro. I can't log in. I tried a number of things but, I have the same problem as many have had. When I start up, I can't do anything. Can anybody help me? I will provide more details if needed. It say that I already am activated.

  2. I activated it before on another computer. I followed the guy's steps to try and delete the activation code or whatever. Now I have to activate it again and I don't have the product key because I lost it. I guess there's nothing I can do.
  3. Not without the key.

    I had the same problem, and printed out a solution that worked for me:

    Boot into safe mode with command prompt.

    TYPE: regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll

    Press enter, then press OK

    TYPE: regsvr32.exe licdll.dll

    Press enter, then press OK

    Now reboot,

    this time round, say yes to activate and press ok when it says already activated.

    If it all works, your desktop should appear.

    The only reference for the solution is mikeyp <mikeyp@discussions.microsoft.com>

    Best of luck.
