    Iit would be the original Windows XP key code. If yours was a "pre-installed" version then there will also be a sticker on the case of the PC with the number, as well as with the original documentation.

    You wont be ablet to login after 30 days.

    You can use AVG for your antivirus. It works great and is free.

    If you don't activate windows in 30 days, you won't be able to boot into windows, as mentioned in post #2 :D

    Pretty cool huh? It's called PIRACY PROTECTION.

    Closing thread.

    And by the way, I have merged your other thread with this one. Please don't duplicate post, and please do not post another question until you have a legal copy of windows installed.
