Update KB971033 - Windows Activation Technologies

Windows Activation Technologies

Today, Microsoft has released a Windows Update named numbered KB971033, which updates the Microsoft Windows Activation Technologies to detect hacks and cracks that activate Windows without a legit license.
Many users who were receiving their Windows Updates and auto-installing them, were left with this:

Windows 7 Genuine PopUp

While uninstalling this little patch is easy enough, once your system is flagged as not being genuine, you will get some nagging:

"The background wallpaper will change to black. You can set it back to whatever you want, but once an hour or so it will reset again to black. Various “nag” notifications will appear at intervals to “remind” you that your system has been tagged as a likely pirate and offering you the opportunity to “come clean” — becoming authorized and legitimate by buying a new Windows 7 license. Some of these nags will be windows that appear at boot or login time, others will appear frequently (perhaps every 20 minutes or so) as main screen windows and taskbar popup notices."

If this is the case, you can do something that will save your Windows installation and help you avoid a reinstall. Search for New Windows 7 Activator [2010] [blaze69], Windows Activator Hazar Torrent (Also known has RemoveWAT2.25) or Windows Activator Daz Torrent (Latest version 1.7.7), with Google.

While making sure your antivirus is on and running, make sure you don't get infected with something. Just activate Windows via one of the tools from above and you're done. You can sit out your remaining Windows 7 days without problems.

(Little hint: bios emulation)

Thank you so much for this information...Windows 7 Activator RemoveWAT v2.1 by Hazar,I had this installed and restarted perfectly and works great so far.Tonight my desktop became black and showed the message "windows 7 build 7600 this copy of windows is not genuine".
