Default problem with activating windows

i installed a downloaded version of windows xp pro on my sisters computer and used a patch to stop the 30 days to activation thing. well 30 days later my sister goes on her computer and she can't log on because windows needs to be activated. when i got to activate windows, it tells me that i already activated it. so i hit exit, logs me off, and then it tells me to activate it again and it basically goes in a never ending cycle. what can i do to fix this?

The only answer to that my friend, is to buy a legal copy. You can get one now for less than 100.00 bucks

I don't know what part that you don't understand

the you downloaded xp (illegal) or

the you wanting a activation crack (illegal again), because your activation crack doesn't work anymore

the only way to fix this is in an illegal manner, unless you buy a copy of xp
