Software

  • Windows Loader

    This program will validate Windows.  It will work with Windows Vista, Windows 7, and a variety of Windows Server editions.

    Do not try to download this program on a computer with strong virus detection!  Most virus scanners will incorrectly identify the loader as malware.

    Microsoft's Steve Ballmer mentioned Bob as an example of a situation where "we decided that we have not succeeded and let's stop."
