Let me say first thati have pirated copy of Windows 7. Already bought 1 for my other pc dont want to buy a second as im a student. So a few days ago, my stupid pc auto updated it self and i got a msg that my win7 wasn't genuin.
I think this problem occures with genuin Windows versions aswell.

Ok so i thought id reinstall Windows 7. Done that lots of times before and usually no problem. But this time!!! Dam! I have tried to install Windows 6 Times now! Yes 6 times! And every freaking time after installation prossess i go to a random folder and right click it. And guess what, it says read only!!! Ok fair enough. Im the administrator with all the rights i can possible get, atleast i thought. So i uncheck read only and apply and press ok. Than i right click again and its still the same!!! I went into properties of the Partition it self and saw that there was an administrator with my username and a non adiminstrator with my username. So i thought i might not have the permission. So i gave every user every permission exept special which is grayd out. And tried again but still nothing.

Iv been reading online that this is a pandemic bug problem and that it have happend since the start of XP and vista. And some say it started occuring after a patch in windows update 13 feb or something.

So my first thought was, have Microsoft finally taken the fight up against pirates. Making a patch that checks if its pirated or not in some way, and that they add it during the installation of Windows. Leaving windows 7 totoally useless. As i cant install ***, since every folder is read only!

I put the theory to the test and unpluged my internet while installing.
But without luck. So i wonder now if microsoft did it so whene you delete and format partitions, it dosnt format everything. Perhaps the anti pirate files that makes this permission read only crap activate is kept safe.

Tomorrow i will try to hook my disk up to another PC to give it a full clean formatation. And than try to install it. Anny one knows a good software to totaly wipe out all data from a disk.

This answear from microsoft is sooo full of bullshit!
