Default Windows Activation

I have 4 days to activate windows. Can someone please give me a crack or something? Ive run one crack already but all it did was get rid of the little thing that pops-up. What happens if its not activated?

If you don't activate Windows the 4 days, then you'll still be able to use Windows, but you'll be presented with annoying pop-up messages informing you that your system is not genuine.

Looks like it is time to spend the $50 or so dollars to get the real thing and the benefits of "updates". Go to and buy the OEM for pretty cheap.
3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

Cracks are illegal... and we can't discuss them here. But you can always purchase an OEM of Windows or something.

Do you have a legal copy of Windows to begin with? Be honest...
