    Wow, Its been a while. Well might as well save it for now.

    Anyway I've had a annoying problem with my *coughpiratedcough* Windows 7 ultimate. I get the "Windows is not Genuine" I have activated windows as well as partially removed wat, now how do i remove the rest?

    it only shows up for windows applications such as notepad, paint, etc.

    Halp?

    Get a genuine version of Windows and install it. That should get rid of the message.

    I disabled WAT through Services in my other computer. I haven't touched that computer in a while, but I think I still get updates and shit.

    It's no more "Warez" in that matter than Wood Firmware, or any firmware is. Flash cart firmwares help skip AP, wich is warez. ;3

    Yeah..
    How clever..


    Anyhoo to dave, Get a later copy of windows, and don't update btw xD updates usually slowdown your pc and stuff.. even if your windows is legal!!
    I use a windows 7 from this april, so far so good.

    Updates speed up PC's and add much needed protection, as well as remove bugs.

    Daz's loader works on the latest versions of Windows 7, including the SP1RC. (I wouldnt suggest installing it though, ive not been to happy with it so far.)

    Well my motherboard died 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting on it's replacement, so I can't test if I get updates now. The OP should test it out since he is already having troubles with it then he can just remove it afterwards if he stops receiving updates.

    Yeah..
    Usually if i update on a newer pirated windows, after some point they hide a protection thingy it the update, and with that it detects a pirated copy and will give u the massage that its not ginuine.
    dunno if they fixed it by now, but i refuse to update anymore, got that problem waaaay too many times T_T
