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 newegg.com and buy the OEM for pretty cheap.

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...
