“Your copy of Windows is not genuine” – this message is received by users who installed a pirated version of Windows 7, after the next security update. Among which there is an update (KB971033), verifying the key for authenticity. This problem can be solved with the help of KMSAuto activator for Windows 7 – the download link will be at the end of the article.
What is KMSAuto
This is a Windows activation program based on Microsoft’s KMS (Key Management Server). Which was originally developed as a means to activate corporate licenses. Subsequently, talented craftsmen created from the official tool a convenient utility for free activation of all user OS.
How does it work
Users often install the OS, already with a built-in key (this is a pirated OS). But with the first authentication, usually the key does not pass validation. This happens because the system periodically sends a request to the remote CCM (real) and if the key fails validation, the activation flies.
Then the user gets a black screen. Unable to set wallpaper or themes on your desktop. Some personalization settings have been disabled. And also annoying message in the tray, about the need to purchase a license.
KMSAuto works on the same principle as KMS, only everything happens on your computer. Creates a virtual remote server on the computer, where the system sends a request to confirm the authenticity of the key, receives a positive response from there, after which the system is activated.
In fact, a “server” created on a computer is just a small process that does not take up resources and does not require user participation.
The only requirements for the normal operation of the program are:
- Run as administrator.
- The installed .Net Framework package is at least version 4.
Net Framework is required for work and other Windows programs, as a rule, it is already installed in Windows 7.
- Activation of Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10.
- Activation of Microsoft Office 2010, 2013, 2016.
- MSActBackUp is a built-in mini-utility for saving and restoring activation for Windows. A useful feature when reinstalling the OS.
- Remove outdated unused Office updates.
- Forced installation of GVLK key.
- Service Management.
- Account management.
- Task Scheduler.
- View Windows events.
- Delete information about previous keys that failed validation.
- Windows Revision: Ultimate (Ultimate), Professional (Professional), Enterprise (Enterprise), Home Premium (Home Premium), Home Basic (Home Basic), Starter (Initial).
- Supports Windows x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) .
- To work KMS Auto does not require network connection.
How to activate Windows 7
KMSAuto Net is portable (no installation required), very easy to use. It is enough to click on the “Activation” button and then choose what you need to activate: the operating system or Office. But first things first:
- Download KMSAuto via the direct link on our website.
- Unzip the archive.
- Run the KMSAuto Net.exe file with administrative rights.
- In the main window, select ” Activation “.
- ow, select ” Activation “.
- Then ” Activate Windows “.
- Wait until the end of the procedure and restart the computer.
In some cases, the automatic method does not work, then you can activate the system manually.
- Switch to the ” System ” tab .
- Click ” KMS-Service “.
- Next, click “ Install Windows Key ” in the “Install GVLK Key” section.
After that, you can create a task for periodic re-activation every 10 days in the ” Task Scheduler “. Thus, even if you miss a security update for key authentication, the system will be automatically activated at a specified time.
This mode is for more advanced users. You can enable it in the “ About the system ” tab by clicking on the “ Professional mode ” button .
It allows you to configure KMSAuto Net in more detail, to use additional utilities and functions.
The program is not a virus, but the antivirus responds to it as a threat. And this is quite understandable, since it modifies the system files so that validation takes place directly on the computer, bypassing the standard method. Therefore, for normal operation, you will need to disable the antivirus or add it to the antivirus program exceptions. The procedure for introducing KMSAuto Net into exceptions for each antivirus is different. For example, “Add to the list of exclusions” – in the settings, or “Consider this file safe”.
Do not download KMSAuto Net from questionable sources. On our site you download a clean archive with the program, tested by antivirus.
How to check activation status
- To find out if you need activation, open the Start menu .
- Right-click on the “ My Computer ” shortcut and select “ Properties ” in the context menu .
- A window opens with system properties. Here you can see the activation status.
But to find out the validity of the key, open a command prompt as an administrator.
- To do this in the Windows Search box, type (cmd).
- On the command line shortcut, right-click.
- In the context menu, select – ” Run as administrator “.
- Next, enter the command – slmgr / xpr
A small window opens with information about the validity of the license.
Uninstall KMSAuto Net
As we have already written, the program is portable, which means it does not require a standard installation. So, you do not need to delete the program itself – there is simply nothing to delete. And the server created by the program does not affect the performance. This is a small background process that can be seen in the Task Manager – KMS emulator by Ratiborus . Every 180 days, it is re-activated, since the key is valid for only 6 months. KMS-Service is not worth deleting. Only the KMS-Service or “Task Scheduler” mode can work with re-activation every 10 days.
