I just have a few questions about KMS activation with Windows 8 that didn't seem to be answered directly in the stickied thread. 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? 4. Will a Windows Live account be banned for using KMS activation? Thanks to anyone who can answer.
