Will using a hack instead of registering it end up screwing up the version of windows again.
This is all just for information. I do not plan on using any "hacks"for windows and in no way plan to infringe on copyrights
Very nice disclaimer. It shouldn't screw it up but you won't be able to do updates manually because it will want to validate. If you have Automatic Updates turned on and let it do the updates automatically it will be fine.
