Just because you've been running it for two years doesn't mean it's a legitimate copy of windows. Microsoft updates their WGA software from time to time.
Contact the microsoft activation number, which I believe should be listed on your screen, and let them know what is happening and if they can help you resolve the issue.
It IS legitimate copy. I bought it, i registered it, i activated it over two years ago. and all microsoft could tell me after an hour trying stuff i had already tried was for me to get another copy of Windows XP and reinstall. NO way. i am not losing all the programs and info i have. so... my quest continues.
