    Hi,



    I disabled windows update via Orbit's tool kit 1.8. I would like to re enable it but when it try to it wont let me. It says updates are controlled by your system admin (which is me)

    *sigh*

    OK... So, Piracy, you failed to mention above (which you mentioned in another thread, and I quote...) that you previously used CHEW-WGA to "activate" your system. CHEW-WGA is a *HACK*. By that I mean that it *permanently* modifies system files. When you use a hack instead of a more reasonable method like a BIOS mod or a loader you get side-effects from all the stuff that the hack does to "activate" your PC. And when I say "activate", I use that term very loosely.

    Anyway, you bjorked your Win7 install by using the CHEW-WGA hack. Do (yourself a favor and do) a fresh install of Win7 and come back...

    Alright, Well I'm going to upgrade my memory to 4 GB so ill need to install a 64 bit version soon. Hopefully by then there is another OEM key leak.

    Thank you.

    No problem. Im sure people would have no problem helping you activate you windows 7 via BIOS mod or loader... And you will have a much better Windows "experience". Hacks are kind of a last resort, so if you can get your copy activated by no other means, then try the hack. But expect issues...

    Anyway, I hope you choose to do a fresh install and try a different approach next time. :)

    Thanks soo much, your help is highly appreciated. I'm baffled on whom to ask for a bios mod. I'm really new to this kind of stuff and every thread as like alot of pages to read.

    As long as you post the Bios you want modded in the Proper thread it will get done but don't expect it done in like 10 minutes, they are a bit backlogged with request. And for pete's sake do a clean install of Win 7 BEFORE you flash your bios.
