Windows Activation Problem

  BBW 10:51 20 Nov 2007

I have run WIN XP Pro for some time. This week I was asked to activate. I say yes, then it informs me windows has been activated!
I reboot and am asked the same request again with same results. This goes on every day.
Anyone help, Please

try system restore to before it started, or run sfc /scannow and have xp cd ready

Many thanks johnnyrocker, did not work out.

Many thanks chub_tor, spot on, obviously a known problem. The Automatic help would not work.
Had to follow the 'Manually-Method 2' and command prompts.
I'm so glad I can remember my DOS C: prompt commands!
Again Many thanks for the inputs.
