Greetings! I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate edition and a month or two back I had to pop out removeWAT to get the nagging to stop. I uninstalled the update that checks validity, denied rights to windows to download ANY update EVER so it doesn't re-download and re-enable itself.... System's been working fine. Till yesterday. All of a sudden when I log in I'm greeted with a big, ugly-ass screen telling me whelp, your windows isn't genuine buddy. So wait. If removeWAT basically removes the activation part and I removed the patch\ security update, how did it "suddenly" know this? Moreover, what are my options now? I thought removeWAT was good, but apparently.... Sorry for the stupid first post question haha . I just want this thing to work a bit longer xD.
