Following the OS Repair with any flavor of XP, you are unable to click
into the activation screen because your browser is different. The OS
repair re-installs IE 6. More than likely, you had IE 7 or IE 8. Reboot
into the SAFE MODE and reload whichever flavor of browser you had before
the repair. You WILL immediately go into the activation screens after
clicking to activate.
