Run Vista for 120 Days without Activation
It was revealed last week that it is possible to run Vista for 120 Days with having to activate it. Microsoft has confirmed that the reports to be true. Each activation period is 30 days but when a command is run from the command prompt "slmgr -rearm" the activation date is extended 30 days from the day of running the command.

A Microsoft spokeswoman confirmed the feature and command on Friday. "Yes, 'rearm' can be run up to three times from the release media from Microsoft". "This means [that] a total of 120 days total time is available as a grace period to customers that take advantage of rearm."

Here is how it is done:

1. Click on Start menu
2. In the search box type cmd and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER (to run the command prompt with elevated privileges).
3. In the command prompt window, type slmgr -rearm and hit Enter.
4. After a few seconds you will get a window that says "Command completed successfully" " Please restart the system for the changes to take affect.
5. Restart your PC.

Have fun,
Steve
