Yeah, at best your registry is FUBAR. If you have an actual WinXP disk, a repair install would be your best bet at this point. Outside of that, you could try System Restore, or just a normal reinstall if all you have is what came with your computer.

Activation issue is actually a different number, the one you relate is about virtual memory being set too small to allow the system to function causing the activation issue in concert. Only solution I google says to start in safe mode, then:

To enlarge the size of the virtual memory: get into Control Panel, then Performance & Maintenance, then System, then Advanced Tab, then Performance Settings, then Advanced Tab, then Virtual Memory- Change, then Custom Size: set the Intial & Maximum Size the same size, at a higher rate than it is currently set on to make it larger.

Safe mode boot may take 45 minutes too, all because of virtual setting.

Have you made some changes to the Virtual Memory settings? Let us know what they are. Usually letting Windows manage it is fine so I'm not sure what you've done.

EDIT: I can't vouch for it but it seems this helped someone with a similar problem (way back):

no changes on virtual memory i have tried restore with no luck and a couple of the fixes for activation with no luck. i think its just maybe i need a list to do all of the copying or the files i never have done this before now and original thing i was trying to fix was the ox80070002 error. i sure hope the don't have to completely format and start over

Re the link in my #2. If you don't feel comfortable in the registry and file system then it's probably best to leave well alone.

That error number isn't specifically about virtual memory. It's actually about Windows' crypto platform:
C:\>err 0x80090019
# for hex 0x80090019 / decimal -2146893799 :
  NTE_KEYSET_NOT_DEF                                            winerror.h
# The keyset is not defined.
# 1 matches found for "0x80090019"
I'm really curious as to what this other error was, and if an SFC /SCANNOW doesn't fix both problems.

EDIT: Oh, there it is, a few posts down.

C:\>err 0x80070002
# for hex 0x80070002 / decimal -2147024894 :
  COR_E_FILENOTFOUND                                            corerror.h
# MessageText:
  DIERR_NOTFOUND                                                dinput.h
  DIERR_OBJECTNOTFOUND                                          dinput.h
  STIERR_OBJECTNOTFOUND                                         stierr.h
# 4 matches found for "0x80070002"

Still interested to see if SFC /SCANNOW fixes things. Otherwise I'd think, your COM/ActiveX DB is messed up, and a reinstall is about the cleanest fix.

Just open a Command Prompt and type it in. The command is case insensitive, so it doesn't need to be in all caps. Reboot if it says you should once it's complete.

I tried the fsc/scannow and this is what I got:
Windows file protection could not initiate a scan of protected system files. The specific error code is 0x0000006ba [The RPC server is unavailable.]

If you can bring up services.msc, check to make sure Remote Procedure Call service is set to auto and running. Also make sure the RPC locator service is set to manual.

If you can get the startup menu and select Command Prompt you can do restore from there. Like this:

Sometimes I've found if you copy the disk (on another computer obviously) the copy will then work. Don't ask me why but maybe because it is a simple bulk read.

You could also wash the disk with warm soapy water, running your thumb around it from center to outside. Obviously rinse thoroughly and pat dry with kitchen roll. If it has a DIY label it could wash off.
