    I've uninstalled the Paradox OEM BIOS Emulation Driver successfully, but in this article:

    Code:
    http://www.mydigitallife.net/2007/08/11/how-to-remove-and-uninstall-vista-activation-cracks-with-voatk-tools/
    it mentions this at the end:

    "VOATK Tools will not remove the Vista Product Key, OEM Certificates, OEM Logos or Tokens.dat that have been installed. So after removing the crack, you may need to activate Vista again."

    Once I uninstalled the emulation driver using VOATK Tools, rebooted, and checked my System Properties, it shows that Windows is still activated.

    So my question to you guys is, how do you officially remove the Windows Vista Product Key, OEM Certificate, OEM Logo or Tokens.dat?

    Thanks in advanced guys. :)

    I got a question here: I have Windows Vista installed on the primary hard drive using the Asus slic 2.0 bios and Asus certifcate for my P5B. I"m planning to install Windows 7 on the secondary hard drive on the same system. I will be using the P5B HP slic 2.1 Bios & HP certificate to activate 7. Since the P5B is using the HP slic 2.1, if I booted the primary drive with Vista, do I need to remove the Asus certicate and implement the HP certificate for Vista? Thanks for any insights into this.
