I installed windows xp home sp2 gr, to my laptop (Original), but after i finished the installation, i tried to activate them, but they didn't get automatically activated through the internet, and i didn't want to activate them through phone. So, i simply downloaded an activation crack, to activate them. The crack removed the notification and everything, so i was sure that my windows were successfully activated.
But 30 days later, i got the message "you must activate your windows" but when i press the OK button in order to activate, a screen apears, saying " your windows have already been activated", press ok to continue, but when i press ok, it logs me out, and when i try to log in, i get again the same message "you must activate your windows... "
Can you log in to safe mode?
You used a crack to bypass activation, what were you expecting?
This may help, but you will still need to activate.

Well, i thought that it would be easier than calling microsoft... Anyway, after that, i went to microsoft, and did all the updates normaly. Now i know that i did a big mistake though...
Well, i can't do that because i can't run the regeditor... It stops me a lot before that...
Try to put back the date , maybe you will be able to log in and fix activation probem . WPA kill do some changes in logon.exe , maybe after windows update that file was replaced to newer version and that security holes were patched again.

didn't work , well i will probably anyway put a live linux cd, to backup everything, and then format and reinstall everything from the begining...
It is just anoying, having problems by a system designed to get the pirates, also creates problems to the paying customers as well...

This is the best and the fastest solution.
Hmm as far as safe mode goes, are you trying just plain safe mode or safe mode w/networking?
WPA will prevent you from getting to safe mode w/networking but not plain safe mode. So if you are unable to get to plain safe mode, then it is either the fault of the crack, or you have something else going on here as well.

But you used the same crack that a pirate would use. Do you expect Microsoft to design software that reads your mind to tell the difference between a pirate and a legit user? I agree that things like DRM and WPA are annoying, but it's people like you that use cracks that create a need for developers to create this kind of protection for themselves.
Please don't blame Microsoft as you brought this on yourself.
Actually, the crack works fine. Replacing the dll files will work (mind you not for WGA virus [and yes, I consider it a virus.]) If you have the WGA (windows genuine advantage) problem, the fix is simple! Re-install windows! Sucks to be you.
If you are going to use duplicate serials as such, you don't want to download IE7 update, or the WGA notification tool. Installing either of those ruins your chances of a peaceful PC experience.
If you are talking about the other activation problem (haven't had it in awhile), the crack works fine. Just start up in safe-mode and make sure you overwrite the cached .dll also. Honestly, you probably downloaded a bad crack if you installed it properly the first time and it didn't work. Don't trust the internet! Google will do you no good here, IRC is your only friend here..... I can say no more.

I have used a crack and it did worked but not all of the cracks work.
If turn windows update off after clean install you can prevent autentication
