    thanks,

    Matan

    The re-image the box, but the license is linked to the HDD id (or something similar I believe), so until you let scrapebox know, or they change their license to another computer it will remain active there.

    Windows Update + Ms Security Essentials is enough... unless you running un-licensed cracked copies
