    thanks 4 ur such a genius crack… i hope i’ll meet u… thanks

    • anonymous Said:

      this isnt a crack dumbass… its to remove the little pop up thing that reminds u to activate windows… its annoying and de-maximizes windows media player…

      • Mr. X Said:

        I think he meant crack by ”you are a crack”. Dont call poeple dumbass upon this..communication noob!

    • Kevin Ward Said:


      • WatsUrName2 Said:

        Thanks in the 1st place. I have the same problem too. It tells me i don’t have a genuine windows,

    • hey i tried but i am not going beyond the current i cant find wpa events can u plz help

    • You DUMBASS Said:

      didn’t work dumbass!

  2. bh Said:

    i cant believe how simple this was….
    ive spent 3hrs looking on yahoo for cracks and nothing worked except for this.
    OMG !!! i want ur autograph!! mail me!YEEE CHEERS! WOOHooooOo

  3. Monksey Said:

    Just to let you know it worked, fantastic, well done.

  4. Lex Said:

    so annoying for windows to keep on asking you to validate your copy. We ar already connected to the internet why cant they just check as to how many computers of the same registration key is on line just like how steam works. Rather than forcing us to buy a new software every time we upgrade which is annoying

  5. DJ Said:

    Works like a charm..

  6. Desperadp Said:

    Sweet man – real sweet! thanks alot

  7. Justin Said:

    Needless to say this doesn’t work with Media Center Edition. If you run across one that does, email me at

  8. steve Said:

    Hi there

    i did this hack on windows xp home edition. i no longer get the activation prompt but i cannot run the activation product at all from the start command to tell me that im already registrered and the WPAevents registry key is completely empty (no oobetimer). am i to take this that this the normal set of outputs and i won’t need to activate win xp?

    any advice would be appreciated


    • Jonas Said:


      Have you tried this one:

      – Click on Start and then Run.
      – In the text box in the Run window, type the following command and click OK.
      %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a


      • Naveed Said:

        I have exactly followed the article but I am sorry to say that I could’nt find the WPAEvent …..
        I am using Vista Enterprise .. any help ??

        Thanks in advance ..

  9. gary Said:

    brilliant!! u r a genius man. it jus worked like a charm. thanks heaps u jus saved me a lot of pain. love u.

  10. Curt Said:

    OK that is brilliant, i have been looking for a way to get rid of it for ages now and that worked without a hitch, plus if you try to activate windows again, it will tell you its already activated.
    Thanks man.

  11. mad garden Said:

    O.K its brilliant BUT in media center edition doesn’t work.
    the computer boot all the time every 2 minutes….
    i try again in home edition and it works fine until now….

    respect my friend you are genius..;-}}}

  12. [ [ :a m a r a h : ] ] Said:

    ty so much ^^

  13. Daniel Said:

    it does not work because if you fast foward your clock by 30 days it say that it’s been activated but it won’t let you log in i tried it

    • Mayank Said:

      you can use safe mode to open your registry settings

      • seb bach Said:

        yeah daniel is right, its like a trial version after 30 days it will prompt again “…windows is not activated” or ” you have xx days left to activate etc.”. you can open in safe mode after that what next???

  14. Coz Said:

    Daniels right this method removes the annoying pop up asking you to activate but does not disable the timer when 30 days is up it will not allow you to log in

    • Yah! 😦

      • I mean Yeah! 😦

      • Ron Said:

        When I did this, it changed my activation time to activate from 30 days to 3531692 days. It has been 8 days and it counted down to3531684. If that goes past the 30 day period, I have a lot of time to use it. I’ll just wait and see.

    • Ron Said:

      I typed the line in the Regedit and now recieve no warnings about activation. However, I ran Start>All Programs> Activate Windows and got the 3 options to do it. It alsaid, After 3531692 days you must activate Windows before you can continue to use it. If that is correct, I have a long time to use it. It did say I would continue to get warnings to activate. I’ll wait to see if I get the warnings and how many days they say.

      • Ron Said:

        I still haven’t got a warning to activate it yet after 8 days.

  15. Jabba Said:


  16. Ali Said:

    I have home edition, but it didn’t work 😦 I have only 1 day left so all help are accepted :s

  17. Johnnyb Said:

    Yeah damn.. I’m down to 35minutes left.. 😦

  18. Barry Said:

    Just tried this on home edition!!

    Worked a treat!!! Thank you soooooooo much!

  19. HM13 Said:

    Works great!!!!!! on win Xp 64 thanks!!!!!!

  20. Core Said:

    URGENT HELP PLEASE!!! I did these steps which removed the notification but now it is after teh 30 days and I no longer can log in. Any fix for this now? I cannot get past login screen now.

  21. Daniel Said:

    Hi, Just wondering would this work on windows vista 32bit home basic as I have 2 days left till activation cos i swopped motherboards.
    Cheers Dan

  22. marty Said:

  23. approved Said:

    BRILLIENT… Works a treat

  24. anand Said:

    Brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful tip with us.

  25. tony Oz Said:


  26. franklinrose Said:

    I have already tried this method but it only removes the pop-up message/notification from Microsoft, but it does not really remove the file that execute to lock ur system to log in…. My question is???? “how would u really remove all files ???? when you adjust your time/day to a 30 days, you will be locked! =( so damn….

  27. Jedaven Said:

    Thank you 4 this !!!!!!!

  28. RebelRunner Said:

    Well…I won’t exagerate and call this brilliant. Your basically just telling to computer not to let the program run. You can take this a step further and have what your computer will “think” is the real deal. However, since I forgot how to even get this far…I owe you. Thanx foe the accurate fix to this problem.

  29. Vinicius Said:


  30. Robert Stengel Said:

    Fools1 Changing your mac adress to what his is will let him acess your computer This is a terrible crack!

  31. Nahmias Said:

    I managed to get to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version\WPAEvents

    The problem is the WPAEvents folder contains no ‘OOBETimer’ at all!!!!

    Is there a cause for this? Is rhere anything i can do??

  32. MARKO Said:


  33. Dewamaru Said:

    this doesnt work, it only temporary removes the activation, but the timer is still active and after 30days you lose access to your computer. sorry, but this isnt a real hack just a way of getting rid of the activation window. DOESNT REMOVE ACTIVATION so dont even bother trying this method and try and find another way. everyone who does this will be screwed after 30 days if you dont find another way

  34. intenerd Said:

    I have spent all day looking for something that actually WORKS and now I’ve found it.

    Thank you very much!!!!

  35. geothermalcat Said:

    Thanks a lot mann!!

  53. Adam Said:

    It does not work.

    I got a message this morning saying my copy of windows needs to be activated in 7 days.

    It may get rid of the annoying message pestering you to activate, but obvioulsy it doesn’t disable the activation

  54. Juha Said:

    Hienosti toimiva ohjelma! It works just fine. Juha from Finland.

  55. Juha Said:

    EIpä taida toimia ei. Poistaa siis vain valituksen, mutta 30 päivän päästä kone lukittautuu. Hitsi.

  73. Ken Said:

    You rock, it works!!! I have a legitimate copy of xp and I really got sick of waiting on the phone to talk to someone that can barely speak english to activate windows.


  74. b Said:

    It works! And if u want to check-it, change the date on your computer + 45 day and u will see that it works, or type in run : oobe/msoobe /a and it will show u that windows is activated.


    • Rickinator Said:

  75. Gowtham Said:

  77. Need_a_cold_onE Said:

    It does not work. I tried it with a copy of XP Pro SP1 and was able to only disable the activation prompt. Skipped my system time ahead one year and it does not work! Luckily I ran this on a test system first.

  78. Joe Bucci Said:

    Yeah, what’s up with that. It stops the “nag”, but STILL expires!! Come on, lets get a REAL Activator that WORKS… PERMANENTLY!!

    I suppose I could just re-install every 28 days. There’s GOT to be a way around this!

  82. Gowtham Said:

    I finally found a great solution for this. Just download this crack and run it.. Hurray!!!

    Now I dont recoment this

    1. Because its Microsoft Hack that doesnt help but instead limits user and other cracks to changing the registry key in the future

    2. It doesn work

    3. Send infinite loop logon screen

    4 This is how I got out of it

    a. Load in to second OS if u have one or get a live cd of some os and replace exe in oobe folder in windows with something else

  142. zerofirefox Said:


    I user windows universal Anti Product activation patcher 2.1.5

    the Win Key + U
    then in Narator
    click small Comp icon in the top right corner
    click link to microsoft web site
    (this can be treaky but play with it and look for the blue link)
    wait for it to load
    Go to file open
    navigate to windows dir…
    find regedit
    right click open(run if you have)
    and now undo changes made

    People, read some of the other posts before you keep thanking this guy! After 30 days, Bill will take over. He didn’t get to be where he is by being stupid!

    Funny how many people are thanking God for pirating software!

    Wonder what happened to all the posters since it is more than 30 days for many…maybe, they are too embarassed to return here to confess they have egg all over their faces. 😉

    This is the funniest post on this page:

  147. Me Said:

    i’ve already did it, it seems to be workin just not to display windows activation. At last, it didn’t REMOVE the activation. After 30 days i was unable to do Win key + u to enter in Windows cuz everything was grey, deactivated. I was obliged to reinstall the whole system.
    Does someone have an iidea about after 30 days?

  148. Jake G. Said:

    Right it DOES NOT Work, it sucks. It works on some old computers though, I will give you credit for that.

  149. Linuxhead Said:

    This crack doesn’t work. I went ahead and installed Winbloze (virtual machine) and the crack appears to work. I set the date ahead to November and restarted and was promptly locked out of the machine.
    …that and the /oobe/msoobe /a doesn’t work either.

    It’s a nice trick tho!

    doesn’t work after 30 days when machine is shutdown windows needs activating but because of hack above no option to enter keys ! for me anyway…..

    • Andrea Said:

      I had the same problem. I shutdown well after 30 days and now get stuck in a loop where it says ‘you need to activate before you log in’ and then if I hit yes it says you are already activated and returns me to the previous window, and so begins the endless loop. I need to retrive my Outlook files!

  160. kennyH Said:

    it worked, thanks dude!!

  161. Ekstreme Said:

    LooooooooL:| it works yeaah thnx

  162. balblabalba Said:

    Sorry dude. Doesn’t work. Tested with server 2003.
    Activation window shows that it’s already activated ,but system says it’s not (when setting bios time +30days forward).
    Nice try though … Solution must be however in the registry .. You’re getting close ,but don’t underestimate ms guys … It’s gotta be an encrypted key in combination with product key somewhere …

  163. wu is me Said:

    I can confirm that this won’t mess around in any malicious way with your registry, as all it does is replace the key of a non-genuine version with a carbon copy of one from a genuine version. Check for yourself!

    Great find, many thanks!

    Yeah it just makes the activation alert to be disable. But it still runs on the background. This is not a permanent FIX.

    I finally found a great solution for this. Just download this crack and run it.. Hurray!!!

    Although the first solution, i never try. I try the above one. This alway work for my computer. Thanks alot.

    this is the best solution ever!!

  179. Robert D. Jr. Said:

    FYI to all. I just ran this in a virtual machine, and it doesn’t work. This was tested on a fresh installation of Microsoft Windows XP Professional with a slipstreamed SP2 (service pack 2 was included on the installation CD). The installation ran in real-time, then the virtual machine was shut down and the clock detached from the host. The time was advanced one year, and the VM was started again. When the primary user logs in, the user is asked to activate. If the user declines, the user of logged out.

    Your results may vary, but this article is quite old, so I would look for a more probable current solution. Microsoft did a lot of work on SP1a to guard it against piracy. As a result, it appears this fix doesn’t work at least for SP2 users 😦

    I realize there have been many posts pro and against, but I wanted to do my own homework. I hope this helps some of you that are stuck and trying to move on to something that works.

    • Andrea Said:

      What did you do in the end? I unfortunately just shut down and now I can’t log back in (I run XP on Parallels in OS X). I need to access my files! I don’t know what to do…

  180. Len Said:

    The bypass is a temporary solution.I followed the timer change advice and after 30 days was locked out.Then used F8 to gain access to safe mode.The used windows and U key to access to web. Ultimately I found solution at—-“”Gowtham Said:

    This works and you must run crack after installation a new service pack but this way to youhave full control over windows again.Regardless I am getting legit copy because I scared myself s..less

  182. Ngutsav Said:

    This is terrific. It worked fine. Kudos guy(s) and thanks so much.

  183. Justin Said:

    It works but their is a trick….

    30 day timebomb is still there and when those 30 days are up you won’t be able to logon….. since I log on and it says do you want to activate Windows now and I click No it will logout or Yes and it will login with only the Activation screen saying Windows is activated. Only option I can choose is OK and it will log me out.

    I’m using the Narrator hack so I can use my PC right now. Windows Key + U and then click on the Microsoft Web Site link to open up a browser.

    Then x:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
    x is the drive letter of your Windows HDD installation. Most likely C
    So if it’s C its C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe

  188. Dave Said:

    do u know how to do it for windows 7 cuz it doesnt have the WPAEvents folder

  189. my friends this doesn’t work….it just removes the pop up of the activation timer…..when seven days are left from the 30 days the windows asks for the key on every restart….so this info given is nothing but shit!

  190. Welshmike Said:

    I got suckered to do the registry change on a virus infected desktop I’m restoring for a friend.
    I took the precaution of backing up the registry before being suckered.
    I’ve restored the registry and string OOBETimer is now
    A8 D6 8B BB 9C E5 C3 6C 24 E9 5C 38
    so that the activation notice reappears.
    I have 28 days to do the activation but the PC has no connectivity so that needs to be fixed soon.

  191. hobbykiosk Said:

    dun do this trick frenz, like other say, this trick only remove the pop up, go find at google, type this WPA Killer, choose the safety one, i will not show u the links, but you have to choose yourself, please be carefull, some WPA Killer have trojan/rootkit and else, thx.

  223. stealth35 Said:

    You may also prevent MS applications (for example, IE or WMP installers) from checking the authenticity of your activation by blocking connections to

    (build a loopback to localhost -your comp- in your system HOSTS file -edit with notepad-)
    This makes anything requesting an outgoing connection to “” from your computer to be driven back on it: the connection and it’s data request will obviously fail. And so your Windows XP installtion will remain fonctionnal.

    This is just a suggestion, I’m not giving any walkthrough neither support on this.

  224. Jackass Said:

    Hi guys,

    Here is the Anti which is able to crack the window xp Activation.
    No need to change any Registry Value it will do it itself.

    Info Usage:

    2)unzip the .zip file
    3)Double click and run “AntiWPA3.cmd”
    4) At cmd hit “Enter key” when it ask
    5) It is work like Magic ( your window has been Activated with no message and nothing pop up 100% work)
    6) go and check the status of registration ” it is done”

    Here is the link to download the “Anti” at hotfile

    Oh this worked wonderfully!! Thank you so much!!

  229. Melina Said:


    Can you tell me how the Genuine XP hack works?
    What rights we deny to the system and what exactly did we do?

    I have tried many keys and patches I found online, but none of them worked.

    The only one I didn’ try is the one that make the computer think it’s starting in safe mode.

    The reason I don’t trust it is because I think there could be security problems.

    Does your hack work the same way?

  230. tad Said:

    Thank you! YOU! Are the best!

  231. tatoolatt Said:

    Sorry for my late reply 🙂

    Yes ! It is definitely worked i have tried it.

    1)You press F8 when you loading the window
    2) Go to safe mode ( Safe mode only)
    3) You continue in safe mode
    4) Just double click the AntiWPA3.cmd
    5) You are finish cracking the Geunie XP

    Don’t worry about the security issue. I have tried it

    Please drop me the email while it is solved 🙂
    Appreciate for your email

      DUDE! Is it okay to run it before the 30 day trial?

  275. Tom Brokaw Said:

    After 30 days I WAS SCREWED! this bullshit cost me so much time. i had to reinstall everything and write to companies to get a new key for a number of programs.

    This only removes the windows activation screen for the 30 days and then you cannot get back into windows, only safe mode. And you can’t upgrade (if you buy a new windows operating system like i had to do) from safe mode! you need to do a clean install if you want to use your computer again. this guy who posted this is HAVING A HUGE LAUGH AT OUR EXPENSE!

    um hey i did this like 2 months ago and it did great but now it is telling me to do the same thing and one day it would not even let me log into my computer so i thing i am going to have to put windows back on there

  278. I Am Poor Said:

    Well I did have a post on here – (user name I Am Poor see some leftover comments above) BUT someone has deleted my how to remove all the windows shit that I put on here – after years of no problems with XP I posted here to help XP users, XP which is fucking years old so why do they care – its like buying a secondhand car, the makers still want you to pay them as well. So I might put it back on here every month just to piss off the dude that took it off!!

    • Andrea Said:

      What was your comment? I cannot login to Safe Mode (running XP on Parallels and FN+F8 is not doing anything). I need to retrieve files at a minimum…

  279. The Soobe Said:


    It seems to work, maybe u don’t know how to do it correctly.
    I’ve applied another patch called antiwpa3.dll, that copies a dll to system32 but it’s no more working because when you restart the computer it asks for a activation again…
    In this mode, the pop up of activation don’t appear and it seems to be activated.

    I think that it will work on a w2k3!

    Hi, I am using windows7 Ultimate. WPAEvents is not there in my windows7. please help.

  283. nimoo Said:

    i did this fix about a week ago, after i reinstalled windows xp to my computer and tried to put in my genuine product key (that then got rejected and told me it was actually not genuine, but windows is stupid and the key came directly of the cd)

    point is i did this fix, and i am still getting a prompt when i restart my computer about activating windows you have six days left etc, counting down the days.

    This fix did fix one of the prompts and it says that my windows activation is activated, but for some reason i am still getting this alternate prompt.

    Any ideas?

  284. Sheikh Said:

    Man thats wonderfull excellent … keep it up many folks will pray for your success and hope you will keep this work alive by free of cost.

  286. William Said:

    ok so i completely deleted the Reg Data In WPAEvents and i think that may be the solution, OOBETimer was one of them i deleted as well.

    now when i click on activate windows it wont even pop up.
    so i think it may work, im going to wait the 30days and
    see if this will indeed work.

  291. Paradox Said:

    This is a bad idea. The fix does not work.

    in my case windows thinks its activated but still placed a timebomb. windows cannot activate because it thinks its activated. Can’t log into the machine at all from any mode.

    I’m going to have to restore from backup. TweakNT works better….

  294. Joe Z Said:

    If you do this and get locked out except for Safe Mode later on, there’s another trick. Put in your XP load up disc and in the “Support” folder find a folder called “Tools”. Unzip or extract the cabinet file there called “” into a folder on the C drive. Run the “Sysprep.exe” file. Choose the “Factory” option. Never clk on the “Reseal” button, just close the Sysprep each bootup.

  295. I savor, result in I found exactly what I used to be taking a look for. You have ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye

    i did this about 30 days ago on my windows 2003 server r2 x64 and it seemed to work great, but now it is saying “your windows product must be activated within 5 days. do you want to activate it now?” when i click yes it says it is already activated. now what?

  324. Conor Said:

    HI, I followed the steps and when I checked to see if windows was activated, it said it was. However, when the 30 day trial ran out I can’t get into windows. It says I need to activate it and when I click yes to activate, it says it’s already activated but logs me out. If you could help, that would be awesome! thanks!
