I am not really sure at what you are talking about. Please can you try to be a bit more specific? Thankyou. :)

Er, don't mean to be funny, but on one of your pictures, you forgot to edit out the PID! I think it is the MCE picture. I just don't want anyone stealing your PID and working out the product key. Vey unlikely I know, but just be safe....

Honestly, I thought you would have sense not to. (I am not saying you are stupid of course! :wink: )

You can't get the Product key from the PID, the PID on its own is useless to any would-be key thief. All the PID can do is give us some information about the type of licence (volume, OEM etc) that it is.

But I thought that there would be ways to work out product keys from PIDs?

I dont see the point - first of all, we would have to figure out the type of product key ( Retail, OEM, VLK)

Second, there are many product keys around that could make the same PID, because there are 39966959347240313551127910614010000000 possible PKs, but only 12157665459056928801 PIDS, so no-one will try to guess your PK if its not a VLk, because no one will go through 39966959347240313551127910614010000000 product keys just to find a already-actiated key.

Edit:

Oh yeah, and nobody would go throught all that trouble when they can find a PK in a simple google search.

And yes, there are ways to work out PK from PID - brute force ways thatd take like 50 years.

The difference, as far as I know, between different [complete] builds of an OS, is the device drivers and integrated service packs, etc....

the icons/wallpaper are customized and the extra options are provided via PHM plus!, but the SP3 and Winver infos are original and genuine. Win FLP is XP version 2006, even without SP3 applied :

it seems (on one of my PCs) it should be by the service pack - SP2= 2002; no SP or SP1=2001

i am not quite sure but it "seems" :wink:
