When you download a old build of longhorn (3718 in my case) Microsoft trips you up with WPA. So lets fix it. Load up regedit.exe, Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE, Microsoft, Windows NT, CurrentVersion, WPAEvents, change OOBEtimer to this 7F 63 3E BE EC 25 8E 19

The method sounds nice... But the content of the post seems not fitting the voting...:)

this doesn't remove it, it merely makes windows think it's activated. the timer will still run down and eventually run out.
only way is through genuine activation or a patch.

i did a shedload of experimentation before XP RTM'd so i know about activation.

Yeh, Peteski Is right. Use a winlogon crack to do the job.
