The Regedit method mentioned here may perhaps work: https://raywoodcockslatest.wordpres...

I haven't used XP since 2009, so I haven't tried it myself.

✔ Best Answer
Something tells me you probably need to install Service Pack 3 (SP3) first to activate online.

Internet Explorer on SP2 is so old it can't even access https:// sites anymore.

You can activate by phone: 1-888-571-2048

If you decide to install SP3 and then try activating online, Microsoft took down the link but you can get Service Pack 3 from the Internet Archive, aka Wayback Machine. Make a cup of coffee while you're downloading it, it is 316MB!
