    So I run a pirated version of XP home edition (there is no way I can afford a genuine OS) and the other day I changed virusprotectionprogram. The antivirus deleted the file antiwpa.dll and now I cant even log into my computer.
    When I start my computer and it has finished booting it says that I have an ungenuine version of Xp and need to verify it. If I press yes (verify it) I get up a page where I can type in my key. If I press remind me later I simply get logged out back into the starting screen.

    Is there any solution to my problem.
    I dont want to reinstall it cause I got a lot of files I dont want to lose.

    I was thinking about putting in my HD into a friends computer as a passive HD and simply get a new antiwpa.dll and put it into system32 again but I would like to know if there is a easier solution.

    There is no need to transfer your HD to another machine. You can boot Windows into "safe mode" and access your file system.

    Download the OEMBIOS changer I have in the stickies. Unpack it with 7-zip or similar. Go to activation tools folder and use the wpa thing there. You can boot to safe mode and use it from a usb stick or cd..I would suggest then making the DMI with a SLP string and using the appropriate oembios files. If you have used the WPA thing, you will likely have to repair install.
