    Dear Sir,

    I have XP pro installed in my computer and it has been activated.
    It has worked fine for a few months without any problems.

    As of yesterday, as the welcome screen comes up with the name of user and
    I click on the user name to log in , a message says windows needs to be activated, do you wish to activate it now and gives you 2 options YES and NO

    If I click No, the user is logged off and the screen returns to the welcome screen.
    If I click YES , a windows appears and says: " windows Xp is already activated, click OK to continue
    When I press OK, the screen returns to the welcome screen .

    and this repeats itself over and over not letting me do anything else.

    Please do you have any suggestions??

    Thanx & Regards


    Jadan
