This is the FBI, you are under arrest for running hax0red Window$.

Just kidding.


I'm pretty sure there is a way to reset the security on XP (without having to reinstall). This gives you the opportunity to enter your new 'valid' serial code. I can't remember offhand what to do. A Google should find the info you want.

If you're just talking about changing the serial code over to the legal one, you could also try this:

Download the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder and run it. Click on Options -> Change Windows Key and type in the new (legal) CD Key.

If you've byte patched the WPA file, you'll probably need to slap in the XP disk you now have and give your system a SFC check - you may even need to restore the WPA file from the backup which (I hope) you made when originally cracking it. You'll also probably need to actually activate it over the net.
