 +===== Update a WinXP product key manually =====
 +Source: https://www.lifewire.com/changing-the-windows-xp-product-key-2624938
 +  - Edit the registry key ''HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPA Events\OOBETimer''
 +    - Change a couple of characters, keeping the same format (you're just changing the timer so the OS deactivates, thus allowing you to change the product key)
 +  - Run ''%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a''
 +  - Choose the telephone activation option
 +  - Click "Change Product Key" and enter the new product key
 +  - Click the back button to get back to the Internet activation option
 +  - You can choose to defer the activation at this point if you need to, but you'll have to activate at some point
