A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error Code:

I finally decided to upgrade from Win2000 pro to WinXP pro so I could use
something more recent than IE6. I got the XP SP2 OEM cd and code from our
IT and installed.

Now when I attempt to log in I get a popup with the title "Windows Product
Activation" and the text shown above in the subject line. This happens with
my own account (member of Administrators group) and with the actual
Administrator account. This happens when booting regular, or in safe mode
with networking.

Any suggestions?

Replying to myself to add new info.

I just downloaded the mgadiag tool. In the "Windows" tab, the Product Key
is _not_ the one I entered (TWICE!) during the XP upgrade. My best guess is
that it is the key from the earlier 2000 pro installation. This is probably
what the problem is. Now ... how do I get to enter the proper key?
