WinXP Activation

I'm getting a new CPU / Graphics Card soon so I'm not activating it til then. But the stupid thing keeps showing up in my taskbar and popping up a tool tip "You have blah blah days to activate". Yet, when I click on it and select "Remind me every few days" it has a strange fetish of being there the next time of look. How can I make it stay true to it's words?

You mean keep it from being in your taskbar?

rightclick on the taskbar, down in the notification area, click customize, then click always hide

As for keeping it from popping up, i have no clue. Mine never pops up any more. I play to reinstall XP anyways

The Corp edition has none of the activation crap, none of the limited install crap, etc. It is so much better it's not even funny. It's funny that the paying customers are the one's getting screwed, lol...

I believe if you search around on IRC you can download just a few certain files from the Corporate edition to patch or crack the store bought copy. I think I used to see that. I'm not sure though, I downloaded the full Corp Edition quite a while back...

Heh...right from the source. A good way to go.

I think the only way I'll ever use XP is if I buy it through Boeing Surplus' software resale.
