    I downloaded Genuine Advantage Validation tool (KB892130) but it hasn't been installed. I'd like to find the downloaded file and delete it before it gets installed when I reboot. Right now Windows Updater is threatening to install it automatically if I don't keep telling it to "install later." I need help right away or I'll be here pushing the button like the guy on the tv program Lost. Thanks

    There's a link at the top of the page Rules. You should give that a read as well.
    You could be banned right now.[​IMG]

    I really have NO Idea what you are talking about, I have done Nothing Wrong that I can see, but I took your word for it that my post was not proper and apologized, and you still came back at me with "You could be banned right now."

    BANNED ME, WHO NEEDS YOU, AS A MATTER OF FACT I WONT BE BACK TO THIS FORUM UNLESS YOU APOLOGIZE TO ME, GOODBYE

    I think Rainbow was referring to the rules on this forum. The Rules link is on the top of this page. Under the rules posting help for pirated software could get you banned. :D

    You also need to read the rules. We will not assist in getting around the WGA.

    Closing thread.
