    Few months back I've done the validation and have since been able to download updates especially those requiring such validation. Curiosity got better of me especially after reading this post--Bypass Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Check in Windows Update--and following the Regedit path given there to find out if I have the 1 (enabled) in the CLSID.

    However, my path only ends with Policies, ActiveDesktop, Associations, Explorer and System without any sign of the CLSID. How come?:confused:

    I'm also interested to know if by updating the current WGA KB905474, it would invalidate my first validation and give me problems, like those I go after updating with SP3:mad:(which I have uninstalled since).

    Your advice appreciated, thanks.
