    After doing a windows XP repair on rebooting will not go desk top asking to activate windows. How do you do that if you can't get to the desktop. On rebooting it just shows the wallpaper and no  icons. Asking to activate windows to continue. Ojas

    How exactly did you do this XP repair ? ?
    What exactly does it say on the CD that was used ? ?

    Does the version installed and the version on the CD match ? ?

    Let us know.

      Thanks for your reply I formatted the hard drive using the same disc that I used for the repair and when finished I activated with no trouble. Ojas
