Another WGA failure

By | 2006/08/08

Another failure for Microsofts WGA. I thought it was interesting that it is now having troubles in the other direction. Not only being too anal & finding false positives but also not finding blatantly illegal copies. Again, this “feature” was the final straw for me. I had a second partition for Windows but no more. Too much of a privacy breach for me so I’m done for good.

Another WGA failure by ZDNet‘s Ed Bott — I just experienced a Windows Genuine Advantage failure. Only its not a false positive, like the horror stories I’ve been hearing for nearly two months now. No, I just installed a pirated copy of Windows using a stolen product key, and Microsoft’s Windows Genuine Advantage tool says I’m perfectly legal. The whole story reveals a lot about how poorly the WGA program is being run.
