Genuine Windows Users RRS feed

  • Question


    Let me know after there are ways of disabling Windows Genuine Advantage Validation then why Microsoft not trying to stop this by any new method?

    Genuine Advantage is a program which helps to determine whether your software is genuine or not.

    Can anybody help me out with a clear understanding about the mechanism of this Validation Process?

  • Validate to Ensure That You're Running Genuine Windows Vista

    Counterfeit software is more likely than genuine software to contain viruses, spyware, and other unwanted software. Whereas activation provides initial protection for your Windows Vista experience, validation confirms the protection as you continue to enjoy Windows Vista. When your copy of Windows Vista passes validation, you can access optional downloads in the Microsoft Download Center and enjoy the full functionality of your version of Windows Vista. Validation is an ongoing and easy process that checks to make sure your system is activated and that your product key has not been compromised.

  • Microsoft introduced this feature to allow only geniune users to have access to the software.This is present in most of the software but not all like they have recently removed this check from the latest version of Internet Explorer.
