Yes, very true!

No matter what OS you use, after the initial installation (before installing any other software) and validation, ALWAYS use a simple GHOST/Image to image that OS only partition, and should you need to format/re-install or for whatever reasons (spy wares/viruses)...simply image back that GHOST/Image you created, it's so easy/simply and no time wasted to re-install or worry about re-activations etc!

I called my Computer Science professor before I did this and he told me that he knows about this and that I am eligable to do it since I am part of my university's ACM Chapter.

They found my name in the database and rang it up, all I need now is for my payment to process!

Don't worry they check if you're student or not, that's why it's taking so long with the payment approval.

I don't know why you say this program is being exploited by many people.
You have to be a student other wise you not gonna get msdnaa access.

Q: Does the license (or "key") permanently unlock the software?
A: No - the key allows you to install the software once. If you need to re-install the software, you will need to contact the PA (Program Administrator) at your school. Your PA's contact email information can be found in the support page. To view this information, please click on the Support button above.
This is not about the Windows OS. It's about the other software they have for download.

I don't think they check. Under "Do you belong to an ACM Student Chapter?" I checked no.

That's about if you are already ACM member. They ask what school you go to when you register.

I can gurantee you guys that they don't check anything at all, 100% sure here.All they demand is $19. Give it to them and you are free to go.

So basically, it is an exploit here, just about paying much less than we should. Not so much a very bad exploit though.
