In January, we shared a registry file hack to make pirated Windows XP and Windows 7 license appear original to Windows Genuine Advantage checks, thus allowing you to receive online updates.
WGA, or Windows Genuine Advantage, has been criticized for failing to detect genuine licensed copies of Windows, thereby denying paying customers the latest updates and patches. While on cen blame Microsoft for these, the fact is that they have done little to change it.
Need for WGA crack patches (hack) for Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7
WGA is a double-edged sword – it prevents piracy, but there have been lots of cases of WGA falsely warning licensed copies of Windows as illegal. We hope to solve headaches for customers who have actually paid for Windows but get repeatedly screwed up by the Windows Genuine Advantage process.
Here are a couple of WGA hacks to stop such faulty WGA checks and let you download updates easily.ADVERTISEMENT
Crack to make Windows XP genuine
There are two sources of patch files for cracking the WGA check:
- WGA Crack v126.96.36.199
- WGA Crack v188.8.131.52 repacked
Direct links have not been provided because of obvious (legal) reasons. You should preferably use the first crack file, as it is a standalone executable. Copy and paste the URl to the address field of your browser to get the crack.
Precautions while using Windows XP WGA crack
Some security software (antivirus etc.) might report these files as virus or trojans – this is typical of many crack files. Once you use the WGA crack patch, any Windows system can access and download updates via Windows Update, Microsoft Update and Microsoft Download Center. You will not see any warning screens saying that you use an illegal copy of Windows.
This hack is solely intended to relieve those paying customers of Microsoft whose computers do not validate under the WGA check. TechZilo is not responsible for any legal problems caused by following this guide.
