Windows Genuine (Dis)Advantage Validation


Recommended Posts

August 3, 2005.

Microsoft rolled out another security update called 'Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130)'

This (security fix) also installs an Active-X control 'MUWebControl Class' that collects various ID and BIOS information from your computer and determines whether you have a legitimate copy of Windows.

This applies to all computers running Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP.

For more information you can go to the Microsoft support website.
