I have installed OS Windows XP Pro. After Activation of windows was complete
I restarted the system. When the login screen comes up a message : You must
first activate windows before loggin in. I click ok,then the windows
activation window pops up and says "windows activation has been completed,
click ok to exit" so I click ok and it takes me back to the login screen.
This is a continuous cycle. I am confused why windows it says I need to
active it when the next screen say it has already been done. Help thanks

Is this a retail Windows XP or an OEM edition?

Do you have a dialup modem or a broadband internet connection? That's to ask, also, are you sure your internet connection was ON ?

Try booting your computer into Safe Mode and then repairing the
registry entries for the .DLL files used by Activation.

Use Start- Run and enter the following text in the dialog box:
regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll

Then do it again with the following text:
regsvr32.exe licdll.dll

Good luck
