Can anyone eleberate on this, As far as i am aware once win xp has been activated on a machine it cannot be activated on another machine, right, then why do people try to sell used win xp on ebay with the key -what good is that? Will microsoft accept that? Can anyone explain please.

If it is a full retail copy (not one that came pre-intalled on a machine) then as long as it is removed from the machine it is on then it can be put onto another machine or sold on and these are about £250 new.
