Thank you in advance for all your efforts. Hello, if the WAT Remover is still available would you please send to me? I am running windows 8. It also displays Windows 8. I have sent the download link, just check the mail.
Honestly I am fed up uploading the file again and again because Microsoft sleuths get it deleted very quickly. I have not tried it in Win 10 but many have reported it to be working. I have already sent you the download link. I fully understand your frustration with keeping this updated.
Allow me to assure you you have many loyal followers that really do appreciate your work and GREAT program. As has been stated before, even with a legal purchased copy of Win7, your program is still needed. I purchased a Windows 7 enterprise license from an eBay vendor a year ago and Windows 7 installed and was validated.
If indeed the license is not genuine Microsoft should not have verified it a year ago and I could have gone back to the seller. Killing the genuine validation after a year is BS.
MS should honor the validation they made a year ago. Strange are the ways MS Windows handles the validation crap. Add to this the eBay shade and you are right inside a F5 Tor. Anyway I have sent you the link, so just chill and forget all the BS. Hi bud could you send me the download link. Windows 7 64 bit. But nope not having none of it, tried registery stuff, cmds just errors etc.
The email address you gave is not working. Send in a working email address where I can send you the download link. Thank you very much!
Hello Mr. Instead, I have received a contract to subscribe to WorldPress. Is this correct? Should I wait to receive another email?
The message you got is automatically generated and sent by WordPress. I send the download link later on. It usually takes days to process all the requests.
I have sent you the link, check your mailbox. Another thing, the windows activation notification will appear during startup, how do I run this tool if the notifications keeps on popping up during startup. TQ Sir. I have sent the link of this tool at your email. Any way best of luck! Remove WAT may not work in Windows 10 latest builds.
However there is another activator called KMSPico for this purpose. Thank you in advance. Tom Davis. Microsoft sleuths are actively looking for such activators like sniffer dogs. They get the download links removed within no time, more so for Win 10 activators. I will try to search and get the working link soon. I have not tried it in Win XP. Windows XP is very easy to crack actually, there are many activation keys available for it.
Thank you so much in advance. Hi Tom I have updated the download link above. Please use the new link to download RemoveWAT. Name required. Email will not be published required.
