Default Reformatting Xp

Easy question, I have seen this on the board before but can't find it via search. When reloading xp, there is a file in either the winnnt dir or sys32 dir that you can copy and replace after re-install so you dont have to activate windows again. Anyone know the name of that file by chance? Thanks.

The wpa.dbl and wpl.bak file are not cracks. it is a legit way to avoid activation.

Its not a crack or a serial. It's a file you can copy. I just can't remember the name of it.

*edit
Thank you eric

make sure you copy both of those files. the wpa.dbl use to work by itself, but activation cracks made MS fix it so, that you need both of these files now
