    Hello MDL,

    For my windows 7, I used RemoveWAT as my activation solution. Just yesterday, I got a message saying you must activate your windows in 6 days (even though WAT is removed..)

    Please help me, I have not downloaded that recent update from Microsoft, and I don't think I downloaded any others, thanks.

    EDIT: I must add this happened after I updated Windows Defender, thanks.

    What version of removeWAT did you install? You can try reinstalling removeWAT and see if that helps. Good luck dude.

    Remove that one or just download/install the new one. It is 2.2. I believe 2.1 was affected by the WAT update so Hazar had to fix it. I would bet that the new one will work for you. Let me know how it turns out dude. :)

    Hey! Thanks for letting me know there was a newer version! I am now using the newer one and I hope everything turns out ok, everything seems fine. But do you know how that message could have came. I mean, it came after I updated Windows Defender, could that be it?

    Probably it was not because of windows defender but more like the actual operating system itself. I know it has some form of built in anti-piracy tool without updates or an update other then the WAT update that might have slipped through which led to it being detected or even just a bug in RemoveWAT 2.1. It is really hard to say one way or another but you should be good to go now dude.

    Alright :)

    If in 5 days I get crazy messages about activating windows, I'll post here. In the mean time, how can I rep you? :D

    If you really want it is the star right next to the "!" at the bottom of all of my posts. :)
