Windows XP can't be updated

Problem: After Windows XP repair, activation window can'be be activated

Windows report that it should be activated however when clicking on activation, nothing happens.

It was solved by instaling Internet Explorer 8.
Command prompt didn't help (oobe/msoobe /a ).
After repair there was IE6 which was probably the cause of this problem. Also, IE8 couldn't be downloaded on this machine, so software instalation file for IE8 was copied from another PC.
There was another error message after windows repair:
"the requested lookup key was not found in any active activation context"
This error appeared on web pages randomly. And it was also solved by instaling the newest version of Internet Explorer.
