Windows 7: Windows Activation Technologies Update for Windows 7.

This isn't even going to stop anyone with a legitimate copy! the day this update is released there will be another crack that will bypass this, windows has been around for ten years, and every single product they have has been cracked successfully.

Hi there

I've nothing against Legitimate activation and decent Piracy prevention -- but I'm a bit concerned about applications "Phoning Home" every so often - especially if you are not connected to the Internet and are doing an important gig where you NEED your computer.

I once had a nasty problem with Photoshop Activation working in this way --in the middle of having to get photos ready for the following day I got a message similar to "Cannot check License credentials" - Photoshop will exit until activated.

As I didn't have Internet access I was stuck -- for a Program I had PAID for and had a valid license. I managed to connect eventually via an old fashioned dial up modem --but what a mess.

I just hope that Windows doesn't go down the same path.

Cheers
jimbo

I don't phone anyone for tech support on my computer cause I can fix it myself.

But I totally agree with you. Every time I call for tech support for my cell I get some guy or girl over in india with a heavy indian accent....

Absolutely agree; that kind of behavior is just disgusting on the part of the software vendors - for a product that you have paid for!! Hope I'm not digressing but I often feel the same way about software that you have to download for a paid product: I am thinking of purchasing an Iomega external drive; excellent reviews apart from the fact that you have to download and register each individual backup application (there are several)! (My) time wasted!

it is not about having a legal copy. it is about something phoning home every x amount of days. in a nutshell we are going to be guilty til proven innocent.

i do not allow anything to phone home on it's own. i have all programs either set to ask permission when i run them, or i go into their settings and click to manually check for updates.
