    AMAZING

    I have the MS Office 2007 Enterprise Edition created by ZWITSO. Today I needed to repair my office installation and had to have access to the DVD for that. I put the DVD in my drive and...... SURPRISE, the DVD couldn't be read. I mean NADA NOTHING. No sound as if the DVD was scratched or broken, unreadable. As soon I uninstalled KB949810 the dvd came to life.

    So it seems that MS has gone to that extent of blocking access to all the custom made/not genuine MS Office editions cd/dvds. The difference between the genuine dvd and zwitso is that the latter has some extra folders in the dvd root.

    MICROSOFT HAS GONE THAT FAR!!!

    SHAME ON YOU MICROSOFT!

    Can any security company run a threat analysis to see what else does the OGA "notify" do (it does MORE than notify)!
