    Hey guys, I just have a few questions about KMS activation with Windows 8.

    1. What information is sent to the KMS server?
    2. Is there any potential dangers with KMS activation(Security, etc)?
    3. If I use the "slmgr /ckms" command to clear KMS Server IP settings, will it still attempt to update after each 30 days, or will it just accept that it only has X amount of days left and not try any sort of reactivation with the KMS server?

    Thanks to anyone who can shied light on the subject! :)

    There is a sticky KMS thread with tones of answers and there is no need for a second one bringing again confusion into the topic o_O
