Windows Xp hack?

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.

You probably won't ever be able to get updates from Microsoft, meaning after they announce their exploits with service packs your machine will be wide open.

I'm not sure that this is true. I am pretty sure that the validation only occurs if you actually go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com. Follow dmh's advice and just leave auto updates turned on.

Windows genuine advantage. You can go through and download all the hotfixes and updates individually but it's a serious PITA to stay up to date.
