I had run out of activations on my original copy of XP after having to reinstall it 5 times because of a crashing machine. So i got one of these windows advantage kits, which is basically a legitimate copy of xp. how many times can you activate this? i'm thinking of formatting. Thanks.

as many as you need as long as its only on one PC.BUt you may have to call MS to have it activated.After like 5 to 10 installs.I have to call MS everytime i reinstall my XP home OS and my Vista.Dont worry as long as you tell them its only on one PC you wont have any trouble
