When I first installed Windows I applied the activation crack. It seemed to have worked because the activation icon in the tray disappeared. However a few days ago I started getting notification messages when Windows started that I needed to activate.
Did the crack not work or can I ignore these messages?
What is wrong with your Activating in the first place. It's not like MS is going to bite your head off. And it's long like you are on some MS MOLP or ACTION BACK programs where they do closely monitor to number of times you activate.
You can normally activate Win Xp about 10 times with the same licences on the same computers. Like I had to activate windows 3 times in has many days a few months back due to a faulty network card.
Also if you change your hardware around enough times, Windows might prompt you do activate again. Freind of mine is contantly changing hard drives and he had to activate a second time.
