Since you brought it back up... it is not illegal to edit your registry. This "hack" is legal, seeing as though u can screw up your registry as much as you want.

It was the second last.... Now then yes it's changing your registry but it's also cheating home from pro a registered product under copyright. And I hardly think compairing Microsoft to a Toaster is proving much.

Oh yes it does actually. As long as teh facts are straight. We are not "cheating" anyone. The registry is a part of the computer that we use. There for we are aloud to edit the files as much as we like. Unless there is an agreement saying: you cannot change the files. That would be crazy anyhow, seeming as every new program we install changes the registry by a hair or 2.

EricB I jest got my pcworld mag and that article is interesting I hope they change what companies can restrict people from in the Eula.Also to make the eula more accessible to people instead of opening the box and to be half way done with the install before u realise what u bought and unable to return it.
