- Activation of Windows XP
Activation of Windows XP
Activation is the process of letting Microsoft know and recognize that you have a genuine copy of Windows XP with you. Activation can be done either through the Internet or through telephone line. The period of activation is 30 days, within which if you do not complete the process, you would be restricted from accessing certain features of Windows XP. Activation is a mandatory process to check piracy.
Unlike activation, registration is an optional step. Registration process requires you to enter your personal details in specific areas. The details include name, e-mail ID and address. After registration, you would receive special notifications through mail regarding new offers, updates etc. from Microsoft. Since there is no specific time limit for registering the software, you can also register your Windows XP operating system at a later stage.
Configuring Windows XP can be done separately from registration or activation. This process includes configuring your Windows XP to suit your personal needs. You can set the desktop as well as various components on the operating system like the firewall and software programs as per you wish. You can create an administrator account and set privileges for other users for maintaining your privacy.
