Microsoft is to tweak WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) Notifications on Windows XP to make it behave more like WGA on Vista...here’s what this latest update brings to WGA for Windows XP:
* First off, it improves the detection abilities of WGA and hopes to further reduce the risk of false-positive identifications
* WGA Notifications now looks and behaves more like WGA on Windows Vista in that it’s naggier and annoying but still allows you to use the system even if flagged as non-genuine
* This update will be offered to the most pirated version of Windows XP - the pro version.
“Another thing we’re doing with this release is focusing on the product edition that is most often stolen. This will reduce the number of customers that will be offered the package. This release will be offered to the most pirated edition of Windows XP and therefore to users with the highest likelihood of having a non-genuine copy, those using Windows XP Pro. We’re also offering it to those using editions based on Pro code such as Tablet and Windows Media Center, but plan to narrow the offering to Pro in future releases.”
This update will be delivered via Windows Update.
