I had to replace my DVD Re-Writer and now get a message telling me that I need to activate Windows XP again. The problem is my computer is second-hand and I don't have the CD Key. I downloaded and ran Magical Jelly Bean to get the CD Key, and it also found the Product ID, but is this enough to activate Windows XP again and keep it working properly?

Thanks.
