Danial not sure if you fixed this and I'm not sure if this is the right proceedure but this is how to deactivate xp you should beable to reinstate the new number this way to???? again i am not sure. you may need to call Bill

Step 1) Start->Run, type 'regedit'
Step 2) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/Current Version/WPAEvents
Step 3) Double-click OOBETimer, when the box comes up, change the LAST TWO HEX VALUES to nulls(00 00)

To Reactivate, go to Start->Run, type "c:\windows\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a" without quotes.
