Activation

Activation is an anti-piracy technology that checks to see if your product key is being properly used based on the software license associated with it. Windows XP must be activated with a valid product key. Get detailed information about how to activate Windows XP from Microsoft Help and Support.

Validation

Research shows that obtaining and using counterfeit software exposes you to security risks, including viruses and spyware. Whereas activation is a required process by which Microsoft determines whether or not your product key is being properly used based upon the software license associated with it, validation is the process of confirming that Windows XP installed on your PC has been properly activated. These technologies are designed to help Microsoft make software piracy harder and to help protect consumers and businesses from the risks of counterfeit software.
Only genuine Microsoft software users have exclusive access to all optional updates and downloads, helping you get the most from your PC. Learn more about why validating Windows is important.
