You get a copy of WinXP OEM cd - 100 % legal btw.

YOu put it on to a computer.

After it has finished loading - you click on the keys in the system notification area.

Then it just goes "You have sucessfully activated windows" without ever having entered
the product key ? ( only when the cd is first put in)

How is this ? Its very rare but about 1 in 20 times it happens.

If it is brand new and that copy of XP has not been activated before, this should happen.
