Hi,

I am attempting a repair/reinstall due to virus problems, but can't find my
authentication code (I do have a genuine XP CD honest!). Is there any way of
retrieving it or getting a valid one?

(And how do you cancel out of the process if you don't have one?)

thanks.

If Windows XP is currently installed and running:

Visit http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html and download the free
Belarc Advisor. After running the program, look under the section
titled "Software Licenses".

If Windows XP is not currently installed and running:
