I think that I did something bad My girlfriend's Dell laptop was filled with spyware...I mean tons! I tried removing it to no avail, the computer was sooo messed up that Safe Mode even refused to start up I told her that we had to erase everything and start from scratch, she said ok. I ask her if she has the original CDs so I can reinstall XP, but no....she couldn't find them anywhere. Her computer originally came with XP Pro, which was great because I have a XP Pro disc at my house, and I will use the license key that is on the sticker under her computer, right? Well, Windows starts up, and I proceed to activate Windows, only for it to tell me that the license had been mistyped, even though it wasn't. It seems to me that my install CD was for a non OEM XP Pro and her license was obviously OEM. Anyways, I did nothing wrong here....but how on earth can we activate that stupid thing?
