hi all. hope you can help me with this issue. i'm in notification mode,can't use updates,keep getting annoying messages,can't even keep a wallpaper on my desktop. Running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit,with tons of stuff on it (various games and more...).i don't won't to do a clean install,can i remove my loader's traces and use a newer loader? loader originally used was windows 7 loader v1.7.7 how can i obtain a valid key? let's say i have a valid key,if i just enter the numbers and letters would everything magically be solved?(i doubt that!). thanks a bunch.
