So if I install all the updates on my Daz-Activated Windows 7 OS, except for the risky KB971033, and then disable updates indefinitely and don't plan to update; will that pretty much ensure that that I won't be ever facing non-genuine status? Theoretically speaking. Or are there other behind the scene tasks that gives Microsoft that level of access to check your system for loaders? It's a simple home computer that is just used to web surf. I just want to make sure it'll run without having to deal with non-genuine status.
