    Overclocking and PC tweaks > Win7 Update WARNING

    Post  Peppies™ on 14th March 2011, 09:07

    BE AWARE that there is a update namely :Windows Update Windows Activation Checker (KB971033)

    This will check to see if you copy of win7 legit and well that spells bad news for some of us

    So dont install (I Recommend to never let windows install auto)


    Edit: its easier read on the site its from : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    For those of you who installed the Microsoft Windows 7 Activation Checker update (KB971033) you can still uninstall it. The reason that viewers such as you may want to uninstall it, is because of the surround rumors that this update creates a new process/service that will slow down your system and has been rumored to monitor the user. If you haven’t installed this, you can hide and prevent the Microsoft Windows Update Windows Activation Checker (KB971033) from installing by using the directions below.

    Many of you need to use the EASY METHOD listed below. That is 100% guaranteed working.

    Steps that I recommend
    1. Remove the patch using the steps below.
    2. Follow the easy method below (WAT 2.25)
    3. After that, restart your computer
    5. Click the activation prompt to follow the official steps to validate your windows
    6. Click the option to download the Microsoft file to re-validate your windows
    7. The activator will detect your Watt 2.25 key and will act accordingly (this takes up to five minutes)
    8. Reboot
    9. Do a windows update check and hide that damn update!
    10. Try rearming windows afterwards if that didn’t work.
    =====

    To Hide the Windows Update/Disable it From Ever Installing:
    1. Go to Windows Update
    2. Click to View Your Critical Updates
    3. Right Click the one Labeled “Update for Windows 7″ with update ID “KB971033″
    4. Click “hide update.”
    Uninstall KB971033 Windows 7 Activation Checker

    Uninstall KB971033 Windows 7 Activation Checker

    For those of you who HAVE installed it and want to uninstall it
    1. Go to Windows Update
    2. Hit Installed Updates (link at the bottom left corner). If that link isn’t there, hit “view update history” and hit the “installed updates” link at the top.
    3. Scroll down to the section titled “Microsoft Windows” and look for update KB971033.
    4. Right click it and hit “uninstall”. Hit okay.
    5. Reboot
    6. Now check for updates again and follow the above method to hide it from installing ever again!
    Note: You can also do a system restore if you are worried.
    I have verified this method myself and did it before publishing this article. I personally do not want any extra processes running on my computer. =)
    Enjoy!

    If you are flagged as having an Un-Genuine copy of Windows 7:

    Steps that I recommend
    1. Remove the patch using the steps below.
    2. Follow the easy method below (WAT 2.25)
    3. After that, restart your computer
    5. Click the activation prompt to follow the official steps to validate your windows
    6. Click the option to download the Microsoft file to re-validate your windows
    7. The activator will detect your Watt 2.25 key and will act accordingly (this takes up to five minutes)

    10. Try rearming windows afterwards if that didn’t work.
    =====

    Rearm Windows:
    1. Copy down these instructions into notepad and save it to your desktop.
    2. Go to start -> hold shift and click run (If you do not see run, simply type run in the start menu’s search box and click it while holding shift)
    Note: Holding shift while clicking run opens up run in administrative mode, which is necessary for this process.
    3. Type in “command” or “cmd” and press enter.
    4. In the command prompt window type or right click -> paste:

    slmgr.vbs -rearm

    10. Reboot and your good to go~!

    Reactivate Windows – Easy Method (easiest and guaranteed working): If you need to re-activate your windows, it has been reported that Blaze’s, Hazar’s and Daz’s activators work. You can easily find it on web pages. Just type “New Windows 7 Activator [2010] [blaze69], or Windows Activator Hazar Torrent” (Also known has RemoveWAT2.25) or “Windows Activator Daz Torrent” (Latest version 1.7.7) into Google.

    After that, restart your computer, then follow the official steps to validate your windows. Microsoft will prompt you to install a file which will then legitimize your windows with the new loader.

    We will NEVER post those files here and we do NOT support this. We highly encourage you to activate your windows through Microsoft buy buying it.

    From here on you can even go legitimize yourself in the future at Microsoft’s website. It doesn’t take long at all. You will already be legit though.

    To all people having trouble, you can go try removeWAT2.2.5 by Hazar. It is usually referred to as 2.2 in screen shots and in the banners but if u open it it and hit About it will say 2.2.5 if u have that version.
