Easiest Method to Activate/Crack Windows 7
WAT remover (by Hazar) is a great software which completely disables/removes the Windows activation time system, making any Windows 7 installation (Basic, Home, Ultimate) genuine forever. It is the easiest method available to hack Windows 7 activation and especially useful for PCs/Laptops in which windows 7 cannot be activated by any other method (Loader, vldr, PARADOX, StopTimer crack etc). Other activation methods do not work in some laptops/desktops having specific BIOS, for example my Acer laptop which has Insyde H2O BIOS. Hell! I tried every possible method to get Windows 7 Ultimate activated on it but failed. Interestingly every method run fine and displays message of “Operation Successful, Restart System”. But after restart Windows Activation Status still shows “xx days left to activate”. Then I came across this “WAT remover” tool which ultimately solved this problem once and for all. Simply speaking it removes the WAT (Windows Activation Time) from computer and thus your Windows 7 installation remain genuine forever. No activation countdowns, no “This copy of Windows is not genuine” watermark and no irritating “Activate Windows now” balloon notifications.
So to get freedom from Windows 7 activation woes, download the zip file from the link given at the end of this post and extract the WAT Remover app
Run the app as Administrator (right click on it and select “Run as administrator”)
Now click “Remove WAT” button
Confirm when asked
Wait for the process to complete and confirm restart
Done!! Welcome to your activated Windows 7
To confirm that “WAT” is removed, right click on “My Computer” and select “Properties”. If the process was successful there will not be any “Windows Activation Status” info column as earlier. This method works for all Windows 7 versions (Basic, Premium, Ultimate). I am not sure whether it will work for Windows Vista too. You can also restore WAT via this tool if required later on.
NOTE: It is recommended that you do not update Windows after WAT removal (by default Windows update is set as “Automatic”, change this option to “Never”), as it may reverse the process. Also if Windows somehow again starts to show as non-genuine and prompt for registration at start up, then run the above tool again and restore WAT – restart computer – run WAT removal tool one more time and again remove WAT and bingo! Windows is genuine again. You may repeat the process as many times as required in the future.
