Question HElp windows activation

Ok so i just finished my pcs weekly cleanup i have windows xp home and i shut it off afterwards to clean my desk. Well 2 hour laters i turn it on and windows asks me that i need to reactivate it. So i do i cant do it over the net so i do it on the phone and the machine on the phone tells me i have an invalid product id. So i just restart my pc and it doesnt ask me anymore does anyone know what might have caused this, im scared its a virus or trojan that might have messed with xp. Or maybe it was my system mechanic that cleaned my registry. Or regseeker to. It doesnt ask me anymore but im still sorta scared. I have windows Xp home.

It's not a virus, what is involved in your weekly cleanup?
