    So, here is the deal: I download Windows 7 Ultimate from the Internet and used 7Loader to activate it. When Microsoft released the anti-piracy update, I accidentally downloaded it, but I removed the effects with WAT Remover AND uninstalled the update , but now (1 month later) out of the blue, the piracy warnings came back and my wallpaper is black again! And the Anti-Piracy update is installed again! The WAT remover doesn't work anymore, what should I do?

    Save up then. Sometimes piracy doesn't always work, sometimes it's better to get the real thing.

    Restore your WAT, and use Loader XE. That should work.

    With the price it is now? Don't think so.
    Seriously, how about you trying helping the OP, then telling him to buy something he clearly doesn't want to buy


    thilixD, all I can suggest is re-installing and turning Windows Update to the option where it lets you pick what updates you want to install.
    I forgot the name of the update, but it will be on the Internet somewhere.

    Or try what raulpica said [​IMG]

    If you already have 7 Ultimate you can make it legal for $35: Check this link.

    And next time Microsoft tells you it has new updates for you, take the time to read the small print. The update that caused your problems is KB971033

    Win7 Ultimate is insanely pricey.

    But in regards to Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600, I'm conflicted.


    How can you "steal" something that is not sold?
    Build 7600 that everyone is getting is the version of Windows that Microsoft gives to Computer Manufacturers like Dell and HP so that they may edit and preload it on their machines.
    Leaked would be the best term to describe it since you cannot buy it.

    I actually can't believe you just did that.
    Enjoy your scam.

    You can or cannot believe what you like or whatever your paranoia suggests to you, that's not something I'm selling, i'm just offering the OP a safe, legal solution to his problem.

    It's a perfectly legal and fairly well known way to get a genuine Windows license. The retail price in stores is so high because of the DVD/manuals/packaging/store markup, do you really think someone selling fake Windows keys would not be booted from eBay in a heartbeat?

    If you want a free solution to the problem, try this:

    But I've never tried that, it might F-up your computer, and your Windows 7 will still not be legal.

    No offense to anyone, but when someone asks for help with a pirated program that may not be working well, the dumbest and most hackneyed reply is: 'buy the real thing' and answers to that effect. We should help the guy out, and that's that...any comments purposefully not helpful are just wasting his time; I'm sure he's already aware of the legal copies of Windows 7 available for sale at his local software/electronics store, he doesn't need to be told.

    You could try looking into inserting an SLIC into your bios and then using an oem key+cert. It uses offline activation and will just look like any other OEM install of Windows, they all use the same key. The anti-piracy updates don't effect this method also.

    Second this. I have a BIOS mod (well, not really as I had SLIC 2.1 already in BIOS, but same concept) and absolutely no problems with WAT. Looks genuine to M$ and I don't have to bother with loaders or updates. It's just a matter of flashing your BIOS and then typing in a few slmgr commands.
