I have called the XP activation hotline (which is a free number) dozens of times, it is automated and is as fast as you can key the digits you are asked for, and then have the activation code given back to you. It takes 5 minutes max.

Not activating does not prevent access to the operating system in Windows 7, only windows updates and Microsoft WGA applications.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
