Possibly Pirated Windows

    Microsoft has updated its Windows Genuine Advantage utility, which determines the legality of the version of Windows installed on a computer and decides to limit its functionality if the verification fails.

    The new version adds an important feature: if the WGA if she could not quite pinpoint deal with piracy or with "legitimate" OS, it assigns it a status of "maybe pirate" ( maybe pirated ), as reported immediately to the user.

    The need for such a modification of the program arose after numerous cases of unfair decisions that were made to her as a result of the inability to connect to the server or any other problems. The user now has the opportunity to troubleshoot and retest the OS license, or to ignore messages from the suspicious WGA.

    Microsoft representatives did not miss the opportunity to notice that their company always cares about the convenience of customers.
