I installed XP. In my system tray is an icon that says I only have 7
days to activate. When I double click on the icon, the "Windows Product
Activation" appears and says Windows is already activiated, but the next
time I boot up I get the message saying that I need to activate windows.
I have tried to going to Start--> All programs --> accessories--> systems
Tools --> Activate. But the System Tools does not have a "Activate" icon.
I have also booted in safe mode and tried to running "regsvr32.exe
regwizc.dll" and "regsvr32.exe licdll.dll".
How do I make sure that my XP is correctly activated and how do I get the
icon in my system tray to disappear?
