Rss feeds not updating windows 7
Here's one example: And that experience is borne out by at least one real-world experience, which was reported, ironically, in the Talkback section of this blog.
After I wrote about Microsoft's most recent anti-piracy initiative last week, one commenter (a loud, proud Linux advocate) insisted that the update opened a secret back-channel, probably as part of a plot by Microsoft to covertly gain access to its customers' PCs.
OEM copies from large system makers (Dell, Toshiba, HP, and so on, collectively known as Royalty OEMs) use a technique called System Locked Preinstallation (SLP).
I've had these forums bookmarked for years and stop in every once in a while just to see what's new.
In a fitting piece of irony, the most recent version of Remove WAT actually goes out of its way to install Microsoft's WAT Update (KB971033), which is designed to detect and remove tampering by programs like... The pirate code remained working even when I ran the WAT update manually. --The other popular approach toward cracking Windows activation takes advantage of the difference between retail and OEM copies of Windows.
Retail copies have to be activated using a unique serial number.
The Windows 7 Loader program, which I used on a test system, looks at your PC's BIOS to see whether it contains an ACPI_SLIC table with software licensing information ("markers" for the Windows operating system and the name of the computer maker).
If the SLIC table is present, the tool installs the correct product key for your Windows 7 edition along with a digital certificate; the combination mimics a legitimate OEM preinstallation.
