I wasn't sure where to post this, feel free to move it (like I have any say in the matter :thumbsup: )if this is an inappropriate forum.

Microsoft is releasing free software to owners of Genuine Windows XP operating system owners (i.e. legitimate copies) in an effort to combat piracy. It does involve participating in the Windows Genuine Advantage pilot program which means validating your software either through the installation of an ActiveX control or an alternate method (which I did not use, I just installed the ActiveX). Further information may be obtained here; http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads...?displaylang=en

Sounds like some good toys to play with.

Thanks for the info.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Ah, Big Brother is giving out toys for Christmas. I wonder what he wants in return?
