    Just outa curiosity, on my XP installs I have always used AntiWPA to Activate and then used the Registry Hack to bypass WGA which has always worked fine for me. So just wondering what what's the purpose of using OEM Bios hacks? All of my computers have been custom built so is the OEM Bios hacks only for OEM computers or something?

    most of the antivirus software know about the antiwpa.dll file and erase it

    Like YIN wrote, that is not a secure/good way to go.

    Using OEM:SLP your computer will look like an OEM Manufactured offline activated computer..
    You may have SLP 1.0 or higher..

    You are passing validation without of using any tools after oem activation. Your system is almost genuine after that :p Only the sticker is needed for full genuine :p
