M$ Wxp sp3 has the drm rootkits like W7 does. Hence why Wxp sp3 is unremovable.
(they scamed US legislators it is a crime to reverse engineer/remove those rootkits, and it is almost to the point one can nolonger even make back-ups of software; one has to just pony up and repurchase the software at full price again! or pay ransom and buy a key...)
They intend to, down the line, disable/destroy software they "decide" is pirated-illegal, or keep charging you to view.
ps. atm i can nolonger even get past the log-in in Shaiya.
