    Software based Security?

    Let's examine the chronology of your accusations... Are you the OP? No! Did I respond to you first, with a veiled ad hominem? No! You did. Are you persisting now? Yes! You flatter yourself. Take your straw man to leave me alone. *chuckle* Go on now... ignore my posts now,

    WAT removal tool.

    Have a read on Chew WGA v0.9. If you are using it on used versions of Windows 7 from Ebay or etc. (of which is is legal to use activators since 7 is no longer supported), then this tool, I have found, outclasses Remove WAT, KMS and Loader by DAZ.

    Windows 7 DCS (Debug Only Window)

    This is interesting, but perhaps these processes will help you eliminate the notification: Make a restore point and remove the accounting program and reboot to see if the notification still exists.

    Well This Sucks!

    I suspect that he is possibly babbling about apathy, nihilism, ignorance. knee-jerk reactions and indoctrinated Golems, beginning primarily with the 80's generations and later. Responses like this seem to elucidate what I suspect.

    Well This Sucks!

    Does anyone here really believe that the cops are going to "get you"?
