To combat the spread of pirated copies of its products, Microsoft has developed a new technology Microsoft Product Activation (MPA).
Until recently, users who choose to install on their computers, Windows 9X/2000, had to undergo optional registration procedure, which in addition to other information required to inform the center of a number of licensing Microsoft on its own. Thus, one copy of the operating system «attributed» to a specific user, sign up to its name. License users to access the most recent software updates, become a subscriber information billyuteney Microsoft reports about new products the company could benefit from a discount when buying the next version of Windows, and, finally, in the event of a problem had the opportunity to seek assistance from a service support. The buyer operating system could refuse to register and continue to use Windows in Normal mode.
Microsoft Product Activation implies a slightly different approach to «legalization» software. During installation, Windows users are invited to enter in the special field identification code, which is usually specified in the documentation for the operating system on the package a CD-ROM or in a set of documents supplied by the buyer with a new computer. Next Windows itself analyzes the user's computer hardware configuration, has consistently oprashivaya various devices and collecting data on hardware discovery, for example, hard drive serial number or processor. When scanning an analysis of only the basic hardware components, peripherals, in particular, printers, scanners, digital cameras, the analysis does not include configuration. In the process of analyzing the computer remains inviolable to all stored on discs private information and, therefore, remains fully anonymous user Windows. No details about the identity of the owner of the computer, the computer manufacturer, producing components, as well as the programs installed on the disk are not investigated and can not be transferred.

To activate one copy of Windows can be only one personal computer. Reinstall Windows on a single computer user may be any number of times without re-activated, but only if in the process of reinstalling was not formatted the hard drive. If the hard disk has been formatted or the system is installed on a new hard drive, to repeat the activation. Reactivation is not necessary, since if the user has replaced the previous activation on your computer to all three components. When more than three components, or when buying a new computer you want to call the nearest Microsoft and indicate the need to reactivate the operating system on the phone. There are no restrictions on the replacement of peripheral devices (scanners, printers, digital photo and video cameras) is not imposed.
