    Windows 7 activation probs

    So I was told by a bunch to grab Windows 7 a while back, so I did (even though I don't like it lol).

    I pirated it ofc and activated it with a crack, which worked until last week where I suddenly became non genuine again. (nobody told me I had to do manual updates rather than auto ones).

    So, after it's already been caught as false, will I be able to use another activator again without reinstalling?

    I downloaded one called windows loader and it says

    "Status: Modified - Uninstall other cracks"

    If I don't even remember what cracks I used etc., how can I achieve this?

    You didn't use Daz Loader.

    Also uninstall and start again fresh. Make sure the torrent you downloaded was the genuine hash/untouched.

    Daz loader was actually the first thing I tried and it didn't work. I had to use something else.

    Also, I'm trying to avoid reinstalling because I don't have access to my external drive any longer and don't want to lose all my shit.

    I have a genuine copy of 7 and i have the same problem. I've tried entering the codes from my box and still no dice, also the windows site is useless. do i really have to reinstall this crappy OS?

    If you have a genuine copy, you should be able to call MS and have them give you an activation code. Unless you don't actually have a genuine copy - not saying you deliberately pirated it, but counterfeit software does exist.

    I bought it from New Egg when i built my new system, so I hope it's a genuine copy. I'll have to call MS to find out what's going on with it. Thanks

    What I have to do (I have my key installed on 4 different computers) is I just click the balloon saying "Windows can't activate" it gives me a phone number to call, I read letters and numbers to the robot, and it gives me back a different combination of letters and numbers. It asks me how many computers are installed with the key, but I always say just 1. Apparently Microsoft isn't smart enough to tell if more than 1 computer is currently using the key... It doesn't deactivate my other installs.

    Easier and less of a headache to just pirate it, even if you legitimately own a key.
