Hi all, just a quick question as this is doing my noodle in. I have imaged my
old hard drive and put the image on a new hard drive as I was running out of
space. Now when I start my pc it comes up with this copy of windows must be
activated, do you want to do this now. so I say yes and the computer
re-starts and after a few minutes up come the activation window saying,
windows is all ready activated. So I click ok and it goes back to login and
when I log in again it just keeps repeating the process. so I put my old hard
drive back in and hey presto that one does exactly the same now, so now I am
at a loss and don’t really want to reinstall all of the OS. Any help or ideas
would be greatly appreciated.

Try this..
Boot in Safe Mode
Start/Run
Type "regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll" ENTER
Type "regsvr32.exe licdll.dll" ENTER

Reboot.

Is the new HD from a different manufacturer, and of a larger capacity than the old?
By chance, did you ever install XP-Antispy ?
