Open Windows explorer navigate to c:\windows\system32

copy the files WPA.dbl and WPA.bak to floppy

these are the activation files for the OS

now you can reformat reinstall windows

once done restart system and F8 to boot options
Start windows in safe mode
after windows loads in safe mode navigate to c:\windows\system32
search for the files wpa.dbl and wpa.bak rename if found to wpa.dbl.backup and wpa.bak.backup

copy orginal files into current directory

restart system.
this is for the operating system only

Beginning with some versions of Office 2000, activation is required if you want to continue to use Office applications after 50 uses. You can "save" your activation and restore it without connecting to the activation servers provided your hardware does not change significantly and the installed Office applications are the same.

Office 2000: Call in and write down the code you are given. It's not date-stamped and you can reactivate using the same code. (Office 2002/2003 codes are date stamped and won't work for a later installation.)

Office 2002: Activate over the Internet and save data.dat.
Office 2003: Activate over the Internet and save opa11.dat.
Both files are stored here:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA

[If you can't see the OFFICE\DATA folder, you need to show hidden files and folders in Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View.]
