    Everything I see on this problem is way outdated (2007 thru 2010)and none of the product keys seem to work. Is there a new list of these keyes available??

    I went to that site and the dowhloads they sent me to were all malware, I had more crap on my system after loading it that I just gave up on the site and it's content.

    What site? Is your post #3 in response to my post #2 and claiming you got malware from this forum?

    Don't alarm, some AV inform some sites as malware vectors.

    Oh I understand that. But the implication is he got lots of malware saying "I had more crap on my system after loading it that I just gave up on the site and it's content." That seems to me to be a little more than an AV program tagging another program as infected. It's well known a loader may be tagged. That's just it's nature, but Daz's is hardly malicious malware regardless of what AV says.

    It's not surprising, if he is talking about Daz Loader, AV began to detect it as a threat just as they are doing with MTK. On the other hand if he's talking about the exe files downloaded when unchecked the download box/button well probably they are tagged as malware too.

    True, I think we're saying the same thing. It would be nice to know the specific program, or programs, that are getting tagged as malicious. General statements that blanket cover everything like a shotgun blast are not helpful in identifying problems. If programs have changed, or if sites have been infected, it'd be very helpful to know the details in order to maybe correct something.

    Moreover, and I apologize beforehand @ttp cause he could be wrong, but maybe he's talking about malware infestation and detection that has nothing to do with servers where Daz Loader is hosted.:D Just a wild guess.

    I am not sure malware is correct! Let's just say there was at least 5 different programs installed without my knowledge or permission and my malware protection did flag it for me but I overrode it. It took me at least an hour or two to uninstall it all and clean up the system. And it was link 1 and 2. I tried them both.

    Still have the same problem and have been reluctant to do anything.

    Tito, I tried that site many times. I could not find a product key that wasn't invalid.

    With the diffuse info you give, noone can help.

    What system you're trying to activate? Which way you tried so far?

    Trying to correct this problem on a Windows 7 Ultimate system which was up to-date on maintenance until a month or two ago. Running on a Dell Inspiron 530 system!

    I tried all of the techniques on the page: [h=2]Not genuine after KB971033 update? Read this![/h]
    And I cannot seem to find a valid key.

    Then it's time to try something else. A loader as suggested would be a good start.

    If u have previously used any cracks or hacks etc on ur windows for activating its recommended to go for a clean install and than use Windows loader it works fine

    1 - Get your system clean. (Malware, virus, etc.) Factory ISO image clean.

    2 - Get "keys" out of your mind. Use the Daz loader. It works - period!

    3 - Close this thread.
