    I have been attempting to change the cd key and I can't get the oobe wizard to launch. I had used antispy at time of install when I built the machine. I have tried to reverse the changes of antispy with no luck, can you describe correction of changes made by antispy?

    this worked for me i hope this helps (-:

    i used the xpkey.exe to gen a new key and.
    The best method to test the Product Key

    1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM.
    2. Click Install Windows XP
    3. Installation Type: Upgrade / next
    4. accept the agreement / next
    5. Type the Product Key to test it
    6. After the test cancel the upgrade

    then i did this, Run regedit and go to:
    HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrent Version\WPAEvents

    Right click on WPAEvents and export the Registry as WPAEvents .reg.
    You will be able to restore the Registry by double click on the WPAEvents .reg.

    Right double click on oobetimer and change at least one digit of this value to deactivate windows.

    when i tryed to run Choose "Run..." from start menu and type in this command:
    %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a
    to get the Activate Windows.
    nothing happen, i did not use any antispy.
    so i unziped the and used the xpproCorp-keyChanger.exe, to get the( let's activate windows) put the key i generated in and it worked!
    hope this helps
