    Microsoft's Anti Piracy Internet Investigator has asked that we take down the Windows XP SP1 key changer and viewer. At their request we have taken down the file, if anyone has any mirrors of their own please post here.

    Hmm...a link to the key changer on microsloth's own website? Is it not possible that the program has a built in trojan? Maybe the standard XP Phone Home or something more sinister imbedded within? I'm not an expert on programming or Microsloth's company policy but something smells bad!

    why did you comply? did they threaten you. what could they do since you didnt right the program, its just info you have on your website and people are free to read what the wish.

    Threats would be a harsh term, but it was made clear that actions would be taken. In this light, we complied with their request.

    Oh, and as to the concept of it being information, the guide still stands because that is what it is... information. The keygen, on the other hand, is not considered just information so has been removed.

    Piracy? whos a pirate? pirates commit murder and mayhem.
    person 1 borrows someone elses cd, downloads key fixit patch.
    person 2 writes upgrade that instead of giving warning message "you got bogus software, you have 30 days to do something about it", sends his machine into perpetual reboot. probably some poor kid who doesnt know how to get in and save his emails away before attempting to reinstall (need new key, previous bogus key recognized in old registry even if you move it away) . include person 3 if you like, guy who wrote original fixit digit. well then, son of man, who would you lock up?
