    I just want to check on the off-chance that my Windows 7 DVD may not be as clean and untouched as I think it is. (hooray for obsessive-compulsive behavior.)

    I'm running with a SLIC 2.1 BIOS, so I have no need for a loader.

    Is there any tool that can check for the presence of one?

    If I find I have one, I'll grab a new ISO from the list of ones that you guys so generously posted.

    Thanks!

    Did you install a certificate and serial at any point? If you didn't then a loader is probably running on your system.

    If you download my application it will also uninstall all loaders.

    Can you not just have a look at the DVD you used to install check out the files in SOURCES\$OEM$

    Yes, I did install a cert and a key.

    Also, Daz, your tool reports my install as "Licensed (Untouched)"

    I assume that's what I was hoping for?

    I'm pretty sure I'm clean and ready to go. :)

    The "Untouched" part is to do with file modifications and RC tokens but since your $OEM$ folder is clean and you installed the serial and certificate yourself then your system appears to be loader free.
