yeah while browsing about an issue (kinda "false positive" non-genuine copy of Windows 7 thing; see the thread I started here), I found an incredible amount of sites offering patches to either remove the watermark, or worse: extend the 30 days trial period when Windows 7 is not activated. This is the most stupid thing I've ever seen: considering that the beta and RC are free, that it's gonna still take months before they expire, that anyone can get the key and activate (as if 30 days for hardware change was not enough ) Oh I forgot those who intend to have a mobo upgrade 31 days after OS install day , they're legions...

Not only is that all very stupid, but it also means, as already mentioned in this thread, that some system files you'll be using have been edited by someone else. And yes, then people come complain about their system being hacked, infected, whatever...they go to security software forums and ask for help there, without mentioning what they did of course...

Yes it's so often the case that the weak link in any system security is the one between the chair and the keyboard

I often get calls from users who "haven't done anything" and then half an hour or so into the fix remember that they did download this thing to "make something better"

As stated in many of the post above, the idea of 'cracking' a BETA version of windows just to remove the watermark is absurd. Why use 3rd party software to activate Windows 7 when the keys that Microsoft handed out with build 7000 work perfectly well & allow 100% activation. I also quite like the 'Evaluation' watermark, makes me feel like a real BETA tester LOL
