    I never paid for the genuine windows software. My engineer installed a Windows 7 which is obvious to be pirated. The question is should I use some OEM activator to active my copy of windows since on checking my computer properties its not showing activated neither showing any serial key.

    They installed RemoveWAT, which doesn't actually remove WAT. If you were to launch the loader it'll probably refuse to install for that very reason. Running WAT Fix might clean it up.

    He used RemoveWAT :mad:

    Use this to clean up the mess, then install this & validate online.

    Updates could be a problem and anything that perfoms a genuine check will catch you out. It's best to clean up now while the system doesn't have too much installed.

    First, run WATFix and let it complete. If WATFix turns out to be successful, try to reinstall the Loader. However, if WATFix fails then a Repair install is in order.

    Note: For any further questions and support, use the Windows Loader's dedicated subforum. The discussion thread and all FAQs are there.
