Looking at a computer using windows XP PRO that each time at startup stops with the error message 0x80070002 'A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the license for this computer'. The guy says he has no idea what happened to start this I did some searches on the internet and a couple places said to log on in safe mode and do regedit and look for a couple entries that had to do with cryptography/providers. I did that and found no such entries. I also did system restores back as far as I could with no help. I did chkreg /r from the recovery console and that did no good. Also found a reference somewhere about hard drive designation being changed and having to make that change to some registry entries, but hard drive is still C just like in the registry

Any ideas?
