Default Wants to keep playing, he, he, he,...

Hi guys, this is my problem, please give me a hand.
I just finished upgrading my computer; MObo: gigabite p35- ds3l- lga 775.
CPU: Q6600 intel
Graphics: Nvidia 8800 gt, 512 mb
Case: Xion
Freezer cooler pro7? + Artic silver 5
First when i started up it posted with no problem but wont let me activate windows (wil freeze on me). Called Microsoft and told me that needed to reinstall the OS, did that and worked (Microsoft charged $79.00 for this service ). Wind. xp SP 2 was gone.
, i download sp2 and is working, but when i try to turn it off for the night it wont turn off, it says " computer is shutting down" but stays on

I could have told you to reinstall windows for free! With tech prices like that, one can start to see why people pirate their software. Not only do you own XP, but you just threw 80 bucks out the window that could have bought, say, another copy of XP.

Sorry for the rant, but I want to cry at the fact they can get away with that.
