Bypass IE7 Windows validation

Posted on October 23, 2006. Filed under: Browsers, Microsoft |

Internet Explorer user Ferdous Mahmud Shaon posts instructions on how to bypass IE 7’s Windows Genuine Advantage during installation.

Windows Genuine Advantage “validates” your copy of Windows to make sure it’s not pirated or stolen (and generally draws out IE 7’s already-long installation process.) To bypass it, you have to replace a few .dll’s and swap some executable’s before and after reboot. WARNING: I did not test Shaon’s instructions myself (I validated my copy of Windows – albeit begrudgingly – last week), so proceed with caution at your own risk if more legitimate methods fail you.
