My problem is that yesterday, when I started windows XP, it appeared a message saying that I have 7 days to activate my windows xp. OK, I put the key, and it said that it was activated. But, today when I've started the computer, it sayd that I have 6 days to activate it. And when I enter where you have to put the key, it says that it is activated. What's the problem? Will I lose windows xp in 6 days? Or I have to trust that it's activated? :thumbsup:

Is this a fully licensed version of windows xp? You actually bought it and have all the legitimate paper work etc. If not, then there is not much that can be done.

If it is legitimate, I would advise you to call Microsoft on this one and explain the situation.

No, it's not "legal"... But the keys that I put worked from december 2002; I think that it's because the service pack 2; I have to check something, and then I'll tell you...
