Hi, some one please help!

:trumpet: First off I have no knowledge other than basic computer usage so please excuse me, if my question seems dumb! :flowers:

I get an error message that says Windows Xp professional must be activated before log on is possible (something like that).
My problem is that I don't have an activation code cuz I downloaded a "trial version" and it has expired I'm guessing thats why I'm getting the message in the first place. Now I'm unable to access any of my files on my hard drive and all my important PROFANE stuff is on it. How can I access it?

And to anyone who is thinking I'm a dumb PROFANE, I'm thinking the same thing of myself. :thumbsup:

Any help or comments is much appreciated!!

First, if you cannot post a topic without the use of profanity then do not post at all. This is a family site and we will not tolerate that type of content.

Second, you can contact Microsoft and purchase a full COA to allow you to reactivate your copy of XP Professional. You can also use the Ultimate Boot CD, or one of the Live Linux to copy your files to a CD.

Hey there,

Sorry about the profane words, and thanks for your advice.
I'll try the ultimate boot, and see what happens.

While we encourage members to express themselves we are a "8 to 80 years old" type of forum. We want everyone to feel they can come here and not worry about being insulted or harassed. What you did was not that big of a deal in the grand scheme, but we stop it before it goes over the top. So in other words... don't worry about it, just enjoy.
I look forward to seeing how the UBCD works for you. Hope to hear from you soon.
