Windows Vista Keygen a Hoax

Thanks to dw2003 for submitting this to the Front Page.

KezNews forum member Computer User, quickly infamous for releasing his Brute Force Keygen to the world, has confessed the piece of software isn't all it was hyped up to be. "Fact is the brute force keygen is a joke, I never intended for it to work. I have never gotten it to work, everyone should stop using it!" This is quite a shocking statement for the simple reason that many have already reported that they have found keys which activate just fine. "Everyone who said they got a key a probably lying or mistaken!" Either the author of the program has decided he does not want to get in trouble, or he is genuinely telling the truth. In short, the generator does work, but it is a very impractical crack.
