gutes programm um aktivierung zu faken
this is kms activator for windows ten its one of the first activators to successfully activate an invalid copy of windows 10
Hi, it is not installed as a python package despite the name. You can find KMS-R@1n.exe, KMS-R@1nHook.exe and one named KMService.exe.inutile with some DLL and MUI files in Windows, Windows\System32 and Windows\winsxs directories. It seems they are services installed and launched as a way for MS-Office to run, but as I have a regular version of Office, it runs also without these services. So they can be removed, or at least you can add a new rule for them not to ever be started again, they may be of some use ine the future (but I doubt this). Maybe a spyware, but not a big threat.
It's a piece of software used to activate both Windows 10 and Office 2016 .
This is a key management system hack. Use it at your peril. Real ms software fake licensing
KMS-R@1n ist ein Tool um die Windows Aktivierung vorzutäuschen. Hat man kein lizensiertes Windows 10 ist es nützlich, genauso wie bei Office und anderen Microsoft Produkten. Da ich nicht genau weiß was dieses Programm ausserdem anstellt würde ich von der Installation abraten. Beim Installieren muss man den Virenschutz deaktivieren was bestimmt kein gutes Zeichen ist.
