I have been left a PC which has an illegal Windows XP Pro on it. I have now purchased a legal copy, but do not want to format and start again. Can I use the new activation code for my existing circumstance and make it a legal copy?

I would say no it wouldn't accept the valid activation key onto an illegal copy.

Try phoning microsoft and asking them what the procedure is :-)

I have two computers in the office & accidentally repair procedured one with the wrong disk... I put the correct key in for this disk and it accepted it, and then it became the new disk version... a few weeks later I did the same with the other one to make it right, so in effect they swapped over computers!

I thank you for your trouble, I have an idea what to do now.
