XP activation on a stand alone PC

I have just bought a new PC and MS XP home for the mess. It is supposed to be a stand-alone as that is all we need.

The XP needs to be activated and I only have 30 days.

Does anyone know how to activate the O/S without going online?

Grateful for any tips.



There should be an option to "activate over the phone"

Its a freephone number i believe, you end up inputting a long code into the phone, write down the code it gives you back, then use THAT one to activate Windows.

Or just get a cracked copy like everyone else :)
If there's a 30 day free AOL trial on the machine you could go online using that, activate the O/S then enter CANCEL in the keyword field and input the required details.
