I replaced the dcpdll.dll as suggested and this time it logs in - but it logs out right away...i am about to copy the whole system32 folder- ( i have the same machine cloned on virtual box and it is running )
hope that works...

I would try to copy the whole thing, but don't replace the files that already exist.. and see what the difference in the count was after the copy.. maybe something got jacked to the point where it was multiple files..
Alternately,
You might be able to do a recovery from boot disk, but i would be hesitant..

Well,
Reactivate isn't the same thing as your key is bad..
So i would try to re-active it..
If it doesn't work,
Call microsoft on the phone and give them the key, and they can give you the registration name..

TIP:
Make sure you indicate you had a virus and were forced to repair that directory, otherwise they will give you a hard time.. (Even if this wasn't a virus, or maybe it was, or who knows.. )
