  • 2. Installing McAfee VirusScan ASaP without local admin
    Hi people, I have the following problem: I want to install McAfee VirusScan ASaP to a huge number of workstations running Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP. These workstations are not members of any domain connect to the network using a VPN connection. The installation of McAfee VirusScan ASaP requires local administrator rights. Since none of the users have these rights I would have to visit al these people to perform the installation. I'm looking for a solution to perform some sort of installation using a single file that they would have to download and execute to perform the installation. Would it be possibe to give the user local admin rights just for the time needed to perform this installation? Does anyone have an idea to resolve this problem? Thanks in advance for your help. Bernard.
  • 3. HAL.DLL Missing or Corrupted when booting
    I receive the HAL.DLL missing or corrupted msg when booting XP. I had installed SP@ and was running for 2 days ok then this morning the computer showed this msg and now I am stuck. I booted using the CDROM which worked. However, when I selected an install it wanted the old system CD for validation that I was not a crook. That CD is no longer around!!! How do I reinstall Windows XP upgrade without an old Windows version CD?? Using an old Dell to get to you right now.. Thanks, Dick
  • 4. repeated activation XP
    I had to re-install XP Home due to some hardrive glitches and have installed SP-2. I now get the "Activate Windows" notice every time I start up or restart my computer. I go through the wizard and it tells me it has been activated. Then I have the same thing when I start up my computer again. Any ideas?

XP Pro keeps prompting to activation after it has already been don

Postby VG9kZA » Wed, 27 Jul 2005 14:50:01 GMT

I have a somewhat new install of XP Pro.  The hardware has not changed, but 
the trial period has expired, forcing activation.  I called customer service 
and went through the automated system, but XP continously prompts me with an 
activation message.  When I click "Yes" to complete the activation process 
again, I get a box stating Windows is already activated.

1.Windows XP Activation - keeps prompting to activate

I recently had to reinstall windows xp using a recovery cd from my laptop 
manufacturer due to a problem which i think was caused by a virus.  Since 
then upon starting windows, it says i need to activate windows.  A blue 
window opens up which then says "Windows is already activated.  Press OK to 
exit"!!  It now says i have 3 days left to activate..  I have run the guided 
help program from microsoft to supposedly fix a script which interferes with 
activation, to no avail.  I have also renamed wpa.dbl and done regsvr32 on 
regwizc.dll and licdll.dll, again to no avail!

Please help!
Many thanks

2.Windows XP Home activation keeps prompting me, now I'm locked

3.Windows XP Home activation keeps prompting me, now I'm locked out

I have a Sony Vaio PC that came with XP home preinstalled.  I had to replace 
the hard drive and used an OEM XP Home CD to reinstall XP on the new hard 
drive.  Since the old hard drive failed, I was unable to use sony's restore 
and the pc came with no discs to reinstall the OS.  I installled XP without 
any problems from the OEM CD using the COA code from the sticker on the 
computer case.

After installing, I was prompted for Windows activation. Having high speed 
internet, I did the online activation.  About a week later, I was prompted 
for activation again.  So I clicked activate over the internet.  I then 
received a prompt stating that this version of windows was already activated. 
 Fine.  A few days later, I received the activation prompt again, so I did 
the online activation again.  Once again, I receved a prompt stating that 
this version of windows was already activated.

Now, I am totally locked out of windows.  When I boot, I get an activation 
prompt, but I click the link to activate and windows just reboots and wont 
let me activate it.  This is a continuous cycle and I am totally locked out 
of windows.

How do I get back to the activation screen so I can get the installation ID 
to call MS?  I attempted calling the activation hotline, but they kept asking 
me for the installation ID, which I can't get to.  I spoke to a 
representative that was of no help at all.  He transfered me to customer 
service who told me they could transfer me to tech support for a $35 fee or 
they could transfer me back to activation department.  So I went back to the 
activation department who again transfered me to customer service.  Now I am 
stuck in a loop with them as well as my computer.  Whats the deal?  Is there 
anyway to get my PC working again?  Wanting to charge me $35 to talk to a 
tech is ridiculous.  I am trying to activate thier product and use it 
leagally.  I can see why so many people use pirated windows software that 
bypasses the activation.  I am ready to scream...  I spent hours trying to 
get the computer to work and then almost 2 hours on the phone with MS.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance!

getting prompted for activation then says it is already activated then it 
puts me back to the log in screen. 

I think this would be for all versions of XP and not just XP MCE.....

Is there  a fix for this?   this is so retarded!

5.After login windows prompts for Activation when already activated

Alex, I don't know if it helps but I've just been told by my customer that 
about a month ago they reinstalled windows XP. Perhaps the problem stems from 
it having gone past the 30 days for activation?

I'd appreciate any help you can give me on this/
