    *Goes straight to MSDNAA* :ninja:

    Edit:
    It's an optional update? :holmes: Just don't download the update? :curious:

    Is that just for Windows 7 though, or for Office too? :holmes:

    It doesn't actually affect me because I'm using Office 2010, it's for a friend.

    AFAIK, it's only to validate OS at the minute, but in the future they might start making to validate all MS software. :hmmm: Regardless whether it did or not, just don't download the update and make sure auto update isn't on. :dontknow:

    Microsoft is releasing a smarter tool to detect whether your version of Windows 7 or Vista is the real deal, but you don't have to use it if you don't want to.

    :beard: I'm not paying hundreds of pounds for the new version, that's for sure. Especially as I will need to pay for Visio on top of the Office price (why don't they include it??). If there's a student price (<£50) for the Ultimate edition (or equivalent) then I will buy it. I'm not having any of this student = Word + Excel + Powerpoint only crap.
