    I have tried Woody Leonhard's suggestion from Windows Secrets Aug 20 2009. It is not resetting the clock.
    I tried it first soon after installing Win 7 on this machine and the command seemed to be acknowledged. But today we have a warning asking for an activation code, so I tried again. The command was acknowledged with a mesaage telling me to reboot. I did that and it is still asking for a code.
    No matter; we have an activation code, but I was curious to see if Microsoft would really let this work for any length of time.

    Windows 7 Home.

    Why not just activate your copy and make it legal?

    Curiousity, DaveA.
    Couldn't resist!
    I thought it unlikely that MS would allow this to continue indefinitely.

    So I have opened the large box that has sat on a shelf for 4 weeks and it is now activated.
