I tried this but when I get to this part

Then to make sure that the relevant library files are OK, Start - Run
and run the two lines
regsvr32 recwizc.dll
regsvr32 licdll.dll


I am not sure what to enter.


Please advise!!!

Something has got very much at cross-purposes. Take No, and you should
be able to logon - but in Safe mode. I'd suggest that you change the
setting that results in the second stage thinking it is activated. Start
- Run - regedit.exe and at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT
\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents
Highlight that and in the right pane double click on OOBETimer and
carefully *change* just the first byte.

Then to make sure that the relevant library files are OK, Start - Run
and run the two lines
regsvr32 recwizc.dll
regsvr32 licdll.dll

You should then be able to use
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Activate Windows
and use the option to Activate by telephone (toll free number will be
given) - that involves reading out a long number, checking it back and
receiving and typing in another in exchange. A modest hassle of a few
minutes, but probably quicker and safer than trying to patch around
things
