ASR Pro: The #1 software for fixing Windows errors
You may encounter an error that reinstalling Windows XP cannot get past the registry screen. There are several ways to solve this problem, which we will talk about a little later. Then, if your needs are not activated, you will usually see the message “Activate now” every day from the fourth to the 27th day. After day 30, every hour someone will receive an “Activate Now” project with a reminder that your version of Windows is never genuine when they launch the Control Panel.
I need my XP Home Edition operating system and I will register it within 5 days. This is a clarification of the problem at hand.
This computer could be a Compaq Presario 732us that some college girl had. We bought him a new Dell for Christmas and I got one in return. It was full of spyware, spyware, games, etc., BearShare, etc., and it took over 5 minutes to launch properly. I used every free tool I could find to clean it up until it worked, pretty good results. I spent a lot of time on the Compaq (HP) website designing their tools and talking online with their own engineers. But never did well. I eventually started deleting start menu items and running an interrupt OS, and the new computer wouldn’t boot at all. So…
I spoke to HP about reinstalling Windows XP… they didn’t ship a recovery disc With a new computer, instead they told me to use the special “Quick Restore” discs that came with the computer… to remove the hard drive. disk triggers and presumably reinstall Windows.
I have used, I would say, QuickRestore 3 hard drives… and the computer should never exit safe mode no matter what I do. I spoke to HP and they couldn’t offer me any help other than buying a new set of $39 QuickRestore drives. My kit seemed flawless… never taken out of the sleeves with holes in it. So upset…
I went through my best collection of factory software and found a blank Windows XP installation disc for my 3 year old Dell monitor. I installed this OS on our own Compaq laptop. It worked great! combined with it still works great. The only problem is that the factory “Help” tattoo on the boot tab is from Dell, not Compaq!
Here are my problems: I have 5 days to register the operating system with Microsoft, and even I’m afraid they will find a “Dell” version of XP on my computer.computer “Compaq”. I just don’t know if I should most often use a Compaq product key or a Dell product key when registering. I think I’ll only have one try if I’m successful, and I don’t want to cause another malfunction by revealing to Microsoft what I did. Sure, I paid for both versions of XP on both of his computers, but it can’t be just Microsoft.
So any help? Should I try to register with a Compaq Generic Product Key? Or should I be using a top secret product from the Dell computer from which my XP recovery disc was taken?
I don’t particularly like spending more money on computers… and I hate buying a new operating system with just a few Compaq computers. HP refused to send anyone a free XP recovery disc.
What should I do?
My Belarc consultant says I need about 40 Windows updates and thus SP2; I’ve been waiting for it to fix a registry issue and I’m not ready to install SP2 – this desktop has a tiny 1.3MB processor, its own tiny hard driveat 20 GB – combined with tiny RAM – 256 MB. sp2 will slow it down too much.
I came to Bleeping Computer because I was able to create Pesttrap/Spysheriff/Smitfraud on it with a situation called Ultra Soft, which I think is the key to the recorder. Soft Ultra removed, but I doubt it really disappeared. And now instead of wallpaper, I have a blue screen of no life, as well as a bunch of pop-ups that Google’s pop-up blocker stops, not Vonage and Netflix. I hope to successfully solve this problem elsewhere on this page, reason enough for your help.

Explain the situation: 04:25 to Microsoft. They can help you a lot since you have legitimate copies of the tool for the system (but maybe because it’s not OEM licensed). But “nothing was decided, nothing won”! License keys on systems that, according to experts, can activate Microsoft.
How do I repair Windows XP without a CD?
Sign in to Windows with any administrator account.Click Start | All programs | Accessories | System Utilities | System Restore.”Select “Repair my computer to help you sooner” and just “Next”.Select a restore date from the date and select a specific restore issue from the bar to my right.
More worryingly, the system contains viruses/spyware. This may require you to do a clean install and then start over with Microsoft.
I suggest doing a setup and reinstall here – my Compaq hard drives might still work (if you format the hard drive before running the recovery discs). If not, you can try another method and then contact Microsoft (but with a clean system).
In the worst case, you’ll have to confiscate the drives for $39, but that can certainly be a lot cheaper than investing in XP on your own! (FWIW – most Compaq hard drives I ordered were only $12-$15 – you can check one withSee support for your model to see if they are cheap.
How do I force Windows XP to boot?
After creating a bootable Windows DVD, insert it into the affected system’s drive and press [Ctrl][Alt][Del] to restart the affected computer. When booting from someone’s Windows boot disk, the computer bypasses the active partition and starts personal hard disk writes and tries to start Windows XP normally.
