Just been pointed at this from TheRegister. 24 hours, can hardly credit it. I assume it works. Beats me why they bother, it's not like their 'on their uppers'.

"This week, Microsoft started requiring users to verifiy their serial number before using Windows Update. This effort to force users to either buy XP or tell them where you got the illegal copy is called 'Genuine Advantage.' It was cracked within 24 hours."

It was cracked a long time ago, MS just forced it on now.

Anything Microsoft do is going to be cracked. Shows the determination of people when they apply themselves.

I cracked it by running the validation tool.
