If your here then your very familiar with Microsoft’s tactic with their “new” WAT (Windows Activation Technologies). In reality it isn’t new at all, it’s basically a rendition (maybe in name alone) of Microsoft’s Genuine Advantage.

So I could bore you all with tech talk behind the changes made to the protection technologies incorporated into MS7, but why drag you through the mundane shit, it’s not what you want me to chat about. Your here because you recently did an update to your legitimate or illegitimate Windows 7 installation and now you have an annoying popup (or an overlay on the bottom right hand side of your screen) that tells you that” This windows copy is not Genuine”.

Now when that appear your probably thinking one of two things:

1. “Dude, I paid for my copy, I bought this from Best Buy and w-t-f, now I have to call MS and wait on hold for this to check out correctly? or worse “I just upgraded some parts in my puter and now it’s not legit?”

Orrrr

2. “Im a mutha fckin pirate, slap a patch on my eye, and give me my digital booty, arggg!”

Which ever one you are, you both have the same problem, and here’s how to fix it.

The update that caused all this calamity was a slipped in update a few months back, though you may have just updated recently to evoke this. The update was :

Update KB971033

(loud booing emanates from the masses)

Don’t begin to think this was an end all solution, it seems that how fast they rolled this out, this is only a small speedbump in the span of attempting to keep Win7 non pirated.

So here’s the solution, you need to download a WAT removal tool, and what do you know, I just happen to have a link to that right here:

CLICKY THIS LINKY FOR THE GOOD STUFF

MIRROR 2 (If first link doesn’t work)

Torrent Download

Now I can’t take credit, this is a Hazar release, and let me tell you, if your not familiar with the cracker scene, this guy is considered a god.

I’ve messed with several WAT Removal apps out there, but this one seems to do the trick well.

I will as always offer any advice as needed, just post comments below 🙂 I’m at WDC2010 right now watching the new iphone 4 being announced, so I have to go, I may not have covered all so sorry if it sounds like I’m in a rush, cause I am!!

Cheers!

    Worked like a charm… If the program is deleted by windows when you try to use it or download it. Burn it to a CD and you are good to go. I did all this in safe mode .. Just an FYI ..
