Microsoft releases anti-anti-activation patch for Vista
The release of Windows Vista Service Pack 1 removed
loop-holes that enabled anti-activation utilities such as Grace Timer exploit
and that Paradox OEM BIOS Activation crack.
Also, Microsoft now issued a separate "Update for Windows Vista (KB940510)",
which is a 3 MB sized file that will check your (non Vista SP1) Vista installation for the presence of the Grace
Timer exploit or Paradox' OEM BIOS activation crack.
