    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. :wheelchair:

    I repeatedly don't see the reason, why a thread, which was closed today, been reopened in a new one asking the same questions. Why not ask these questions in a sticky thread which deals with this matter over more than 200 pages? :eek:

    Because it most likely would have been ignored, it was answered here.
