Vista Build 5308: Disable Activation

Posted March 22, 2006 by William_Wilson in Microsoft Vista

Have Vista Installed, but either don’t have a legitimate key, or your key is already in use? Extend your 12 days by disabling the activation!


open msconfig:
start\run and type msconfig

in the window move to the services tab.
uncheck both of the following:
Software Licensing Service and SL UI Notification Service

This will keep the activation from running and the second stops windows from continually reminding you that this has happened.
Your product is unregistered, but will continue to run.

I have noticed a slightly slower boot, but everything is a little slower with Vista, and it’s massive memory usage ๐Ÿ™‚
