Ms deactivate virus are made for getting paid twice. No help

Specs: Windows XP home
English ain´t my native language, so please, overlook my shortcomings and lack of politeness.
Endless auto-loop on activation, even the boot broke down. Have specified what my needs are without any replay from Microsoft. The, by stationary phone, received activation code, from Ms, only work for 3 days. After that the same deactivating-reactivation mess revitalized by Ms .
Ms claim that my hardware has change a lot (during three days!) and therefore a reactivation of Xp-home was a compulsory need. The activation code didn´t activate windows XP-home, not even for 3 more days, instead is seemed rapidly turned outdated and obsolete. To get a new activation code, by mobile phone, have Ms made an impossible task. Ms office in Kista-Stockholm-Sweden have no interest in contact with customer at all that have already once paid for Xp-home. I made a personal visit to them. They were polite, but that was all. I tried real hard to equal return their politeness whit the same. I can´t see any reason why I should have to go through a lot of time- wasting result-less trouble just because Ms are trying to get paid double. Why does not Ms send me the requested files instead? What happened to honesty and Ms own policy rules?
Of cause I create a reset point before installing SP3.
Copyrights on files, made by me, using rstrui.exe are not by any law property belonging to Ms. Instead the creator of the reset files must be the owner of the legal rights in question.
Ms do not respect others immaterial rights, only their own rights. Therefore Ms feel free send virus that delete reset files because it fits their interest to get paid multiple times. As far as I know, the rstrui.exe was included in the buying of XP-home, or do Ms claim otherwise?
What Ms see as the purpose with rstrui.exe, if not creating useful reset files, are hidden in the darkest of darkness's...Does anyone know who can speak?
I have almost give up on getting my files back, that I lost in the end of February, representing moths of work on original music composing, creations and audio mixing.

It's pointless trying to talk to Microsoft as XP is an old system as far as they are concerned.

As long as you haven't formatted the harddrive your files are still there so your first task is to recover those. You need an external drive big enough to hold your data then get a Linux disk - (Ubuntu for example, which can be downloaded as an iso, created using Nero or any other burning tool, and then run it as a Live disk (ie do not install it) ). This will give you access to the file system on your computer and you can then copy your data onto the external harddrive.

Once you have done this your best option is to just reinstall XP as long as you have the activation key from the side/base of your system.

Even if you reformatted your drive you can try Recuvva, it is free and should find your music files, providing you haven't installed a bunch of programs in after the reformat:

Just download the free one, it works fine

I recommend the ubuntu Linux option also, it works a treat and is easy to use. In fact why don't you consider a Linux OS over a Windows one. Then you will never have to pay for support or have to deal with viruses again.

That is NOT good advice. Linux is obsolete and missing many drivers and not even close to the Windows operating system. People either like or hate it as it is NOT user friendly at all.

Im afraid you are completely wrong about Linux drivers etc, the latest versions are very user friendly and the change over was smooth. And the Linux community is very very helpful.
It's a shame people are scared of what they don't know and judge only by what they have heard of older versions.

"not even close to the Windows operating system."
And I thank God, that it's nothing like the virus infected world of Windows.

Of course you know that viruses ONLY target something that is mostly used...it used to be that people said that Apple PC's (Os) never got viruses, so more people bought Apple...guess what...NOW Apple is getting riddled with viruses. Virus developers think...the more the merrier. Linux stands FAR below the margin needed for virus developers.

Linux (which i tried and found really unfriendly to users....I only tried it because a friend of mine on the Navy Base said that if I mastered Linux, then there would be lots of $'s in tutoring different companies) is too complicated and will NEVER get into the industrial field. People only need good PC sense and adequate protection on their PC to use Windows OS. I don't have tons of time to figure out an OS that is the underdog.
It is a proven fact and will take many years for Linux to be used on a larger scale...FREE is not always better.....

Considering Linux is in banks, eftpos, cellphones, digital tv, google and the worlds top super computers as well as a lot of Govt computer systems, and many more growing daily. It is obvious to most people in the business world that a virus free OS is fantastic.
Comparing Apple to Linux is no argument as they are like chalk and cheese.

It extremely hard for any virus to thrive in a Linux environment, it is like a barren waste land. A virus even if it infects the users account, it will not allow it to spread any further than that. And in 99.9% of infection nothing will happen at all. (And with NO known viruses in the wild, I don't think I will be worrying about viruses for a very long time)

Which Linux OS did you use? From Lucid onwards they are very user friendly and only an idiot would have troubles with it.
Window lacks security, it's like Swiss cheese, full of holes. Viruses love Windows as it will allow a virus to run unchecked. It will spread through your pc and any connected to it? A very safe OS indeed.
If you use the Ubuntu Software Center to download programs you will never be infected as each new program has to pass a huge barrage of test etc before it is even considered safe for release in any Linux distribution. Not downloaded off the web unchecked like Windows programs.

The thing to about virus writers, is they tend to leave Linux alone because it's made by the people for the people. It's like a unwritten law that they choose to obey. The whole operating system is available to the whole world to look at on the web, and any one can add to it, modify, fix security holes, create software. Which makes it even safer, because more eye's looking at the code makes it harder to infect.

I understand that this very forum runs on Linux.

One reason it doesn't get attacked is because there are a stack of Linux variants so there is no guarantee that a virus which infects one variant will affect others.

I have read that Linux is easy to understand if you have never used Windows, which trains you into the MS way of thinking (good for their bucks). That puts me in a less than ideal position to be a proper Linux user I guess.

I've been impressed with what Puppy can do running from just a CD and RAM.

Linux is far from obsolete, in fact it is devoloping at quite a high rate. There are new versions every time I check.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

MrGoodguy, check the comments on this site:
https://www.linux.com/news/enterpri...
see how the idiots like Lucid which you said is so easy to use. I like the one where the guys says 7 reasons to upgrade to windows 7...ROTFL

I'm puzzled by the interchanges on this post. In particular:

"Linux.....is too complicated" (#6).
"the idiots like Lucid" (#9).

Surely if the Linux folk have mastered something which is complicated then they can hardly be idiots, unless the word "idiots" has been redifined to mean anyone not sharing ones own particular opinion.

As for the latest Lucid not being up to scratch then that might well be true. It is, however, well to remember that MS have had their bad OS versions too - Windows ME and Vista come to mind.

This is a forum which supports Linux, ME, Vista, Mac, and a stack of others (including plain old DOS). We should respect the right of people to run with whatever system they happen to choose, not to openly regard them as having some sort of mental disability.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Uhh? Sure, me and everybody else.

Regarding #9 post from xpuser4real,
It took you five days and you only found one guy ranting about how bad lucid is?? Well done!! I will run out tomorrow and buy Windows. You should also tell Justin to change from Linux to Windows for the forum.
