    Got a new laptop that is currently running legit 8.1 and was going to do the Windows 10 update.

    I have Office 2010 that is activated with KMS but keep hearing more and more about the fact that MS can detect pirated software and block/disable it.

    I use Office a lot and it's pointless me doing the Windows 10 update if I won't be able to use it. Is there any truth in this?

    Sorry but sick of explaining what MS meant when they posted that.

    NO !! don't worry. But if you would like it explained, just ask.

    I'd appreciate if you could explain.

    I've used the search but I'm probably not wording it properly or not entirely sure what it is I'm looking for.

    Thanks and sorry. I realise it's probably been asked hundreds of times.

    You make your own decision: believe what's been coming through reputable news source, or some paid off Microsoft shill trolling forums.

    Because of post 4, let me go deeper. The same spying has been added to win 8.1, unless you have stopped updates.

    So your office should be turned off right, well it's not is it and it works just fine.

    Let me put it this way, if MS can do what people are blowing out of proportion, then no one will be able to use anything, so when that happens what would it matter.

    Now for the MS news. MS was talking about their own Xbox games and apps.

    They have not been able to stop that either, and ask them why thousands of people are using windows Enterprise for free if they can stop them.

    It's a scare tactic that will go NOWHERE !!!!!!!!!!!.


    Please ignore post 6, and if you need proof why, just read it's other posts.

    Page 39, if your doctor told you not to laugh, then don't read it.
