False advertise at Microsoft GA home page RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • At the home page of WGA in Portuguese Microsoft says there is an especial offer if you validate your windows. The offer is 3 on line training for free. When you click in the link to choose the training, you go to the instructions of downloading a .exe that just validadte your wondows. After validating you go to a home page with lots of advertising from ohter companies.

    I have never been redirected to any pages to choose the promised free courses. In the home page of the special offers, the only free offer is Microsoft Security Essentials. So the course is a trap for the users to install the .exe from Microsoft. I want my free online training. How do I get it?

    The home page link is:
