How to Fix Office 2010 (Error 0x80070005) Activation in XP

If you have tried all the suggested solutions from Microsoft and had no luck. Try to change the plug and play service's security descriptor using the SC tool. It worked for me. First, make sure you can execute sc.exe on your machine. If you do not have it, you can download it from Microsoft site. Then run the SC tool from the command prompt.
C:\>sc sdshow plugplay
You will get a security descriptor for the service. Copy it and append (A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU) to the string. Use the new string to update the service's security.
C:\>sc sdset plugplay <whatever string you copied>(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)
Now try to activate your office 2010 again.
