XP is unable to validate the license or something.
please post the EXACT, word for word error message.

quickfix if you dont want to mess with it would be to boot from your xp cdrom, hit enter for install, press f8 for the agreement, then choose (R) for a repair install.

will probably fix it but you may have to redo some of the updates.

have you tried uninstalling the progs you installed before this happened?

Are the progs Hacked or cracked?

And did you try a system restore?

Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and System Restore. If you have a restore point before the problem started and you can restore to that time, it should fix you problem.

Driver signing wasn't right. You might what to try a rollback.

Goto My Computer and right click and then to properties, then to hardware/device Manager and you will see a yellow quotation mark. Then click on the problem and to properties and reasign the driver it used before hand as called a rollback but while loading the same programs up with windows Xp you just might still see this error until you have a device driver for windows Xp for the programs.

What ever you installed wasn't Designed for Microsoft Windows XP so uninstalling these programs is what I would do or going to the product website to see if they have updated drivers/patches for using the programs with windows XP.
