    If you disable Windows Updates, and add an address to your hosts file (I think Hazar posted it somewhere)... you'll be good for a long while.

    This key will last as long as MS does not put out a patch to disable it. If you dont run your Windows Update, you should be fine. Then when a new OEM SLP key comes out, swap 'em and continue on...

    EDIT: twiz, you mean this address "127.0.0.1 mpa.one.microsoft.com" right? You put it in your "hosts" file that is in the \windows\system32\drivers\etc\ folder...

    Well, I did the opposite, I run all the updates to see what happen and guess what, still activated. So, by now, it's all PR.

    They can´t do "nothing"

    But maybe... do something, is just related to press, and general public...

    "ms blocked the key"

    sure :rolleyes:

    My remedy to be activated forever:

    1°) Don't read Ms communication. It's all BS and fuzzy enough so that impressionable people think they can do things they really can't do, like come into your computer and render all l**ders ans activ*tors inoperant, believe me, they can't.

    2°) Don't become paranoïd. In fact, Ms is flatted that there's so much (not so) 'underground' activity around their new OS, it's a sign of success, as everyone wanna have it, they know the sales will follow.

    3°) Continue to use it normally, to update it. If ever (but really i doubt it, as i said it's just communication BS) the Lenovo seri@l that we all know become blacklisted, a new one will be leaked, and so on, no need to worry about it. Your activ*tor (or your BIOS mod+cert) will continue to function normally.

    Doesn't everyone remember that the same thing happened to Win XP Pro. Micro$haft blocked the first leaked key with an update and then other keys soon leaked. We all survived.

    Yep, I've been a ZZ Top fan since 1974. My Mom bought the Fandango 8-track for me for Christmas that year.

    I still play 'Lagrange' on my guitar, as this is the most fun-to-play song ever composed!

    EDIT: yes i know we're totally off-topic but believe me all this topics about Micro$oft FUD blabla are totally useless, better speak about music!

    Count me in to the ZZ Top fans here :D
    I can't play the real guitar but love to play some ZZ-songs in Guitar Hero ;)

    An the safest way IMHO is to re-arm till another un-blacklistable SLP key is leaked and update windows as usual ;)

    Yeah! Back in the Future, and the apparitions of Gibbons in 'Bones'! a good surprise!
    I missed their french tour in 2008, but i hope they come back soon as i just read that they still have a solid fanbase in France!
