I'm putting this out there so people don't make my mistakes but if you wanna troll I hope it happens to you.

No need for the hostility.

Just saying, why illegally download ISO potentially filled with anything, then complain about it, rather than download it legally direct from the source (Microsoft)? confused.gif

viprk24 you don't seem to understand what deep freeze does. please do more research before pretending it is the end all be all protection. especially with the internet age. everything that is on your computer (pw's and such) is also stored on the internet (how else would they verify your typing the correct pw... duh) so before flaming your own stupid decision, next time be aware that you are not even protecting yourself to the extent you think you are.

This is why it's worthwhile checking hashes of downloaded ISO's....

You missed the bit where the authentication controller has a flaw and is compromised. redface.gif
Additionally, if I were hacking an account - I highly doubt I'd have the need to change the e-mail address associated with the account, if and when I got in. I'd just steal your stuff, or send e-mails on your behalf in a botnet for spam, and get on to the next one.

Holy mother of malarky jesus christ on a stick, This thread is full of so much information.

Firstly @ OP it's your own fault, Learn to scan your stuff before you open it, internet rule #101, It's the first thing you learn at internet school


Secondly, DOWNLOADING ISO'S IS NOT ILLEGAL SO LONG AS THE ISO IS UNTOUCHED, YOU ARENT PAYING FOR THE DATA WITH A LEGIT KEY, YOU ARE PAYING FOR THE KEY ITSELF, THE KEY ACTIVATES THE SOFTWARE, BYPASSING/MAKING YOUR OWN KEY IS THE ILLEGAL PART, IE THE CRACK.

Still the kids don't get the msg...nor do they understand the point of me posting here. (Ignorant kids I guess.) I'm not posting here requiring help, blaming anyone, or anything for my mistake. I did wrong I admitted it and I accept the consequences. Now if you guys can't catch this simple hint maybe you guys should return to pre-school.
