A family member has a new Compaq SR2019UK PC pre-loaded with XP2. Does he need to activate the XP2 & if so, how? Start/Accessories/System Tools doesn't offer an Activate option.

It may well be ready activated; some are when they come. If MS wants it activated, be sure it will ask!

run

Compaqs are pre-activated.

No need for activation, Rossi#1 is correct.
