    HELLO ALL,
    I am a newbie here. Firstly kudos to the awesome work you guys are doing here. I usually download windows and office apps on torrent but they havea lot of spyware trojan .

    so i downloaded win 8.1 from windows official site. Installed on a VM. now i need help to activate it. i have gone through many threads in this forum but most seem very old. I found a thread on KMSPICO but not sure as it very old.
    Can someone please link a trusted link for activating 8.1, i am scared of KMS as many people inject malicious code along with it. Thanks a lot guys

    KMSpico 10.2.0, MTK2.6.2, KMS_VL_ALL 10 by abbodi1406, all will work on 8.x.

    thanks a lot enthousiast. I activated using kmspico 10. one last question do i need to reactivate after sometime or is this permanent?

    Also can i uninstall KMS from my system now? will it break activation?

    If you didn't want to install anything why didn't you use the portable version? KMSpico installs a service which renews the activation ever (re)boot or 24hr.

    hi , sorry but i didnt know portable wont install anything. I just wanted to know if the kmspico service is safe to run in backgrond? as many AV detect it as malicious. Thanks
