What EULA??? ...

 

The one you agreed to when you became a member @Bleeping :)

 

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

 

 

Violation of any of these rules can lead to a banning of the user from our Web Site and a deletion of their account. The consequences will be determined by the Staff on a case by case basis.

 

When posting you agree that the administrators and the moderators of this forum has the right to modify, delete, edit or close any topic, signature, account, or profile data at any time that they see fit. If you have any questions concerning this, please do not start a new thread, but rather private message to an administrator or moderator.

Going to step in here and settle some things.

The registry tweak in question falls under "defeating copyright and/or security measures" which is against the policy of this site. Microsoft has specified that updates for consumer versions are no longer available. People who are using this hack have taken matters into their own hands and appropriated Microsoft's code even though they have not purchased a license entitling them to the use of that code. Contrary to popular belief, you do not "own" the code in question. You have paid for the right to use said code. Specifically, you have paid for the right to use the code belonging to the version of Windows you have purchased. Altering your installation to acquire code from another version of Windows is theft. It might not seem fair to you, but that is what you agreed to when you purchased your version of Windows.

Additionally, applying updates which were not designed for and have not been tested against your version of the OS is foolish and can result in instability, incomplete protection, and compatibility issues. It's dangerous.

What you do with your version of Windows is your business; we are not in the business of judging. However, the registry hack is not to be recommended or suggested on this board for the above reasons. End of story.
