    Having RomoveWAT patch applied, Windows 7 Ultimate - Build 7600 is restarting every 2 hours. First I thought, it would be the virus problem but then later found out from event viewer thats its Windows Activate error which causing the problem.

    Now my question is Restoring activation (using RemoveWAT) will make windows expired or will give 3 days activation period so that i can apply another working patch ? most likely DAZ loader.

    Expert please advice.

    Thanks

    Aha, I know what you've done.

    You've replaced the tokens with RC ones from some other god awful hack, and it's causing the expiry from the RC to happen.

    The best fix to recover from messed up tokens is a clean install - others may suggest how to recover them but do you really want a compromised system ??

    If you answer yes to above install Windows Me.

    Seriously - a loader is software that tricks Windows into "thinking" (quotes because Windows can't really think) it is installed on an OEM machine like a Dell where activation is achieved without connecting to M$ servers online.

    To do this it emulates a table of data called SLIC 2.1, installs a matching digital certificate to your system and installs the OEM SLP key - viola activated.

    For this to work the loader must run at boot time !

    A BIOS mod is where you flash your BIOS with a modified one which includes the SLIC 2.1 table - no need for loader as the certificate and key can be inserted by 2 simple commands.

    Hope that explains a little.

    PS - as a new member I'd use Daz's loader to activate my brand new install and make sure you have a reliable DVD to install from - download a good one or if you can't beg, borrow or steal one - it sounds like you've gotten hold of a horribly hacked "Frankenbuild" one or you used an older so-called activator from the Beta/RC release days.

    Well I have one machiene with a legal/legit copy I bought, but my other dosnt have a key and ive used like 30 thing and I went through the new update thing and it was all messed up.
    But I didn install a loader once and it gave me a red screen with a bunh of windows booting options and whatever one I picked it sayed error grub or something.
