    if the pc is an OEM brand then the activation is tied to the motherboard and unless replaced with the same exact motherboard cannot be activated

    It sounds like it senses that you tampered with it and that's why its doing a shutdown on boot. As a last ditch effort you can try to boot to safe mode and type start > run > Rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupOobeBnk

    if the reg keys are still there this should reset it for another 30 days. otherwise just reload XP

    If you are still having trouble with it, you could try a little utility program called AntiWPA.cmd which loads an AntiWPA.dll and update the registry.

    I had tested it long ago and it worked very well. However, I don't need it with my XP computers. I just tested it out of curiosity. Hope this helps.
