When using a reinstall recovery disk to restore the system does XP need an
activation code of some sort? System is functional but it will not accept
activation of Norton Systemworks 2005. IE6 will not communicate with Windows
Update Site, just a blank screen including other non responsive sites with
Java Script. System Restore disabled.

not that im aware of. you have disabled the system restore feature. But that
is not the issue. If you installed system works and it has fire wall what may
be the issue is the windows firewall and norton cant be on together. If they
are you will not be able to communicate with update site and IE will not
function properly. This happend to me with norton. But on mine it would not
even let me get onto the internet. I would uninstall system works and see
what you get. If it fixes problem then you know. As to back up and restore
you should go and turn it back on

It really depends on the recovery CD. Some do, some don't. But the key
should be on the sticker on the computer.
