WGA LegitCheckControl.dll ver. - CRACK RELEASED !!!

So I saw quite a few post on the internet regarding a release of WGA v1.8.31.0 and everytime I tested the Microsoft Update site, it gave me v1.7.69.2, which made me wonder.. whats all this talk about this new release.
So I did a lil research to discover this:
If you are using Windows Update or Microsoft Update or Microsoft Download Center, all updates from these sites download WGA v1.7.69.2, which means that as far as "Online Validation" is concerned, Microsoft is still at the same version for their online downloads.

See this article:

Revision : 4.1

However, they have released the updated WGA Notifications Tool as on 8/26/2008, which is v1.8.31.0, and this is a standalone, offline installer which includes the updated versions for the files required for validation.

You can download this standalone, offline installer from here:
Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications

So, "IF" you use THIS installer, you will have the updated v1.8.31.0 installed, along with the bugging Notification Tool, "BUT" if you stick with the online updates, you will have the v1.7.69.2, WITHOUT the bugging Notification Tool from Microsoft on your systems.

While KB892130 is for online validation, KB 905474 is a Notification Tool.

I am posting the cracked release for v1.8.31.0 now for those who have already used the offline, standalone installer to upgrade their WGA validation files. You can download it here or here.

You know what to do with this. :-)
For those who are new here and need help, read my previous post for usage instructions.

As always, I will request again to keep me posted on any change in the version of the original WGA files.

Till we meet again ... :-)

Cheers and Enjoy !!!
