Come on Microsoft, are you serious? Disabling my system for no reason? "unauthorized change" Plz help, ran diag. RRS feed

  • Question

  • First of all, To disable my system is very ballsy. To make matters worse, My copy is genuine. If you guys are smart enough to disable my system, why aren't you smart enough to tell its genuine?

    AND WHY DONT YOUR DOWNLOAD LINKS WORK? are you serious?? Im about to get a mac because of this.

    Stephen posts links that are dead ends "network timeout" on download links.  cmon now

    You disable my crtl alt del and start button and still cant get the process right

    I want action and a real response, not a previously generated answer
