Uninstall RemoveWAT. It's been superceeded by Daz's Loader for ages!
Daz's loader can now take a KB971033 enabled system and rearm it.
For your info, you CAN uninstall that update from the Uninstall menu too as it's NOT an important update...
Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program > Views installed Updates.
Find it in the list and uninstall it. Then just rearm using [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or above. It also does not matter if it's SP1 or not. Daz's Loader fools the OS into thinking it has a Slic v2.1 Table.
I agree completely with Conkers though, loading a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] is the way to go!
I'm still using removewat on my netbook, and I've installed every windows (7 Ultimate 32 bit) update going, including SP1.
Is this the best solution for ultimate? As mines just stopped working
I have RemoveWAT installed I think (can't remember)
If you do have it installed. Run again, add restore WAT, then run again and remove WAT.
I think you might find that watermarks will stay saying non-genuine though, but there is a fix for that.
This happened on one machine for me, but the fix cleared the watermarks and RemoveWAT continued to work. Another dodgy update from MS must have borked it.
Fix: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Out of date - Use Microsoft Toolkit 2.5.2
