In many cases, pirated software is hacked to run, and won't work correctly if you buy a license and attempt to apply it to the hacked version. AntiWPA doesn't make a genuine operating system out of a pirated one - it just strips out the activation code  - which is a violation of the DCMA laws. In my experience, it's best to wipe the drive and reinstall fresh with a clean copy of the properly-licensed software.

How important is your time? Pirated software, even if you could "convert" it to being "genuine", could also contain unknown/unexpected code that was added by a 3rd party. The last thing you want to do is infect your office with some spyware/malware because you were too cheap to buy legitimate operating system software. And you'll spend far more time troubleshooting issues if your software came from an unknown source like a torrent.

If you run into an issue with not being able to buy the software you need - let's say you have a legacy app that requires being run from Windows XP - you could pick up the license from a third party on ebay and just go ahead and use your pirated copy to get things up and running. How could you be breaking the law if you (eventually) buy a license?

The ones who compete in the finals are almost always talking smack and screaming, even if it is Polish jibberish. Screaming or grunting has actually been proven to give extra bursts of adrenaline as it pushes your body into fight or flight mode, so there is a bit of method to this madness. Thanks.

Hi pizda,

Do yourself a favor and just buy a copy of Windows. It's much easier and will save you the worries about running hacked software. You can snag a copy of Windows 7 right from Microsoft's site here:

Buy a key for under $30 for Windows 7 SP1! Search for Windows keys.  Other versions of windows are also available.  Keys are valid and come with a link to download the operating system you purchased.
