Question about PC Desktops
I am assuming that you legitimately own this copy of Windows,
because as much as I LOVE the gods of Microsoft, I would not
want then to set my house on fire :):)
Please,,,, understand that I must not instruct you in the crime
of stealing Windows. If this is your goal please do NOT read
this reply and your legal problems are you own !!!!
Can you still get into Windows ?
if so, download a free key retriever called JellyBean
by Alec Ozolins, from:
This tiny program will display all the Microsoft keys on your
machine (or any other machine, if you have access to one)
You may wish to disable your resident anti-virus program
before running it, though, because many Anti-Virus companies
treat key retrievers as undesirable.
The Jellybean is legit and clean as long as you own a legit
license to the target computer and you just lost the CD
If you can no longer get into Windows (anywhere),
then you can try to call Microsoft with a soft story,
and expect the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the IRS, CSIS,
RCMP,MI5 and MI6, the KGB, the Interpol, Moussat and
the Mafia all at you doorstep in under 10 minutes, not
necessarily in that order.
Alternately, you can search Emule, mscracs.com, crack-spider
or the PirateBay.org.
Keep in mind, however any corporate or leaked product key
that has been in the wild for too long, is likely to be blocked
by Microsoft for the purposes of Activation or updates.
Many hacker sites offer random key generators which Microsoft
cannot easily block, but make sure you scan these for viruses
(very carefully) before running them on a good machine.
These key generators also generate the second activation
code specific to your machine, just choose to activate by
phone, not over the internet, then enter your machine ID
(request code) into the keygen, and get back the required
phone activation code.
Another way is to use corporate or special keys, that Microsoft
does not WISH to block, such as internal Microsoft keys,
corporate training keys etc. There is no shortage of these on
Emule or pirates bay either.
In the case of VISTA, check pirates bay for Windows Pantehon.
The pantheon group released VISTA before Microsoft did :):)
using an OEM emulation driver and a key-less version of
windows Vista Ultimate, which Microsoft cannot block,
because all the OEM laptops such as Dell and ASUS
would no longer work. The OEM's rejected any concept of
activation to harrass their customers, and opted to put a secret
code in their BIOS instead.
Pantheon emulates this BIOS at a low level beneath Windows.
Like I said, I am assuming that you really paid for your windows
copy. If you were trying to pirate windows, I obviously want
no part of it. The nice people at Microsoft work very hard at
world domination, and they do not take piracy lightly.
Please rate my answers.
