In fact, the Beta development milestone of Windows 7 SP1 already contains the Windows Activation Technologies Update for Windows 7.

Additionally, Windows Activation Technologies helps protect against the risks of counterfeit software. Windows Activation Technologies in Windows 7 consists of activation and validation components that contain anti-piracy features.

What risks? If you know where you got it from, and didn't get it off of iwantwindows7withvirses.com or any other stupid no name site, there are no risks with pirated software.

And yes, I do own a technet account and a legit (about 8) copy of Windows 7, and I will install SP1 without a care in the world, but seriously Microsoft has got to stop banging the book on how this stuff is "risky" and "has the potential to steal personal data" I mean really, those who do it know better. :rolleyes:

But before MS release a crack killer a killer crack will born. MS said the same thing about their WAT update. But WAT was an absolute fail. The crack for WAT was available even before WAT was released!! These crackers are really smart. MS has to make windows a cloud OS if they really want to get rid of these crackers.

They're not saying it for people who hunt down and install pirated copies of Windows on their computer. It's for people who have unscrupulous technicians who install it on their computer without them knowing. And believe it or not, it does happen. There's a lot of assholes in this world and there's a lot of idiots in this world who don't know any better (the most common type of idiots are the ones who don't know they're idiots, but think they know everything on the subject they know nothing about). If you do get the alert and you know you put a pirated copy of Windows on it, then the alert should be no surprise to you. If it is a surprise to you, then you should contact the person who provided you with the key or installed the OS on it for you. Because if you don't know your copy isn't legit, there really is no telling what else may be on your computer without your knowledge. And whether you realize it or not, there is no telling what's on your computer if you install a pirated copy of Windows, regardless of whether you know where it came from.

The update KB971033 is already very infamous. Now people will start avoiding SP1 too. :P

KB971033 didn't do anything to me, i just reactivated with the same years-old crack
sp1 will probably be cracked before it even officially comes out

Fair point. That actually didn't cross my mind at the time, but regardless, good point..

Best example is Craigslist @.@

Bullshit!

I have genuine copy too but I don't want another process running in my task-manager.

I still want to see if this is true.

We have for the sake of testing, taken a fully updated, cracked win7 ultimate, and installed SP1 on it. Its working 100% so far... The crack was some bootloader thingy that was easy to find and use.

Seems like MS hasn't quite figured out how to get past that one :P

Anyway, just saying...
