    Microsoft "Genuine Advantage" cracked in 24h: window.g_sDisableWGACheck='all'
    AV sez, "This week, Microsoft started requiring users to verify their serial number before using Windows Update. This
    effort to force users to either buy XP or tell them where you got the illegal copy is called 'Genuine Advantage.' It was
    cracked within 24 hours."
    Before pressing 'Custom' or 'Express' buttons paste this text to the address bar and press enter:
    javascript:void(window.g_sDisableWGACheck='all')

    It turns off the trigger for the key check.
