How To Use Unactivated Windows XP

If you don’t activate an install of Windows XP (or if it fails activation because you are a lying cheating bum), there’s a cool way to use that supposedly disabled system anyway. All you have to do is try to use the system and wait for Windows to ask you to activate it. Hold down the Windows Key + U to open Microsoft Narrator, press ALT+DOWN and select “About Narrator…”. Click the hyperlink in the About screen, and Internet Explorer will launch. From there, you can brows the file system and the web, making for a damn good (but not perfect) computer without paying for (and without hacking) Windows.

Tomorrow Times has more detailed instructions, but this is a pretty cool hack. Enjoy!
