Hi There!

The first step would be to have them go to a Pay-Phone and call Microsoft at the 800 number on the WPA page.

Provided that they have a LEGAL copy of WinXP, then the kind folks at Microsoft will assist them.


Make sure they have their Certificate of Authenticity and the product code available.

And the point of all these oddball questions would be? :rolleyes: I suspect where you live, there is a telephone, you seem to have no trouble getting to the Internet.
