    I have a machine with a valid key that worked for installation for Windows XP. When I try and validate Windows for patches/software, it denies me. I was wondering if there was a work around for this. Didn't really get a whole lot out of the stickies, and I'd rather not have to reinstall.

    Nope. I have it, but I hate using the brand-name Windows XP that ships with it. That key won't work with a cleaner install.
