For those whose Windows XP, 2003 and Vista system is installed and infested with the latest new version of Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool ActiveX control version, Team ETH0 has released the corresponding cracked version for LegitCheckControl.dll v1.7.59.1. As with previous versions of WGA crack hacked by Team ETHO, the crack is not a full workaround to bypass WGA. However, the cracked version will work 100% on Windows/Microsoft Update to allow users to apply any updates or download software from Microsoft Download Center.

As with WGA LegitCheckControl.dll v1.7.59.0, the installer script of the crack will remove WgaTray.exe and WgaLogon.dll from your system. Both DLL files are responsible for notification nag screen and message that appear on system tray if your system if found to be non-genuine. Thus, with the crack, you won’t see any embarrassing piracy notice anymore.
