Danger level 6
Type: Malware


There is an entire group of hacking tools that hide under the name HackTool.Wpakill. All these tools are created in order disable Windows Product Activation (WPA), Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) or Windows Activation Technologies (WAT). It disables Windows operating system activation and thus allows user to make use of illegal copy of Windows. HackTool.Wpakill does so by changing system files, stopping a number of system services and terminating particular processes. The downside of using this tool is that user cannot update the operating system thus making it vulnerable to a number of infections. Also, HackTool.Wpakill modifies the operating system itself, so instead of considering the possibility of using this tool, remove HackTool.Wpakill right now and invest in a legitimate copy of Windows operating system.

The most dangerous thing about downloading HackTool.Wpakill to crack illegal operating system, is that the hack tool is very often bundled with potentially unwanted software and even malware applications. Therefore, by downloading HackTool.Wpakill you would be willingly (albeit unwittingly) installing malicious applications on your computer as well.

Once HackTool.Wpakill is run, it makes sure that the "Activate Windows" link is removed from your Start Menu. Then if you open Activate Windows dialog, you will see a message which says "Already Activated". That happens because once you execute HackTool.Wpakill it replaces a number of legitimate Windows files with its own. There are many different variants in different languages for HackTool.Wpakill, and these hack tools can be downloaded directly by users at various Internet websites. Despite the fact that users often use this tool to crack Windows, in the wild HackTool.Wpakill is known to be a malware distributor. It usually comes with backdoors, worms, password stealers, Trojans, adware, potentially unwanted software and so on.

    This is a tool for people who want to pirate MS Windows, and it removes WPA (Windows Product Activation). This program leaves you with a fully functioning version of Windows, and even MS Windows Validation p***** as genuine. The only people who don't like this program are at MS.

    BS. Remove WAT isn't a virus or trojan or malware of any kind. It's a hacker tool that removes Microsoft's product validation BS.

  4. Philip Feb 23, 2011

    Absolute nonsense. Been using the program for over a year.

  5. sedra May 13, 2011

    Extreme warning hack allows you to use your Windows copy the correct way rather than the official way through $$

    This won't give you "EXTREME COMPUTER PROBLEMS"
    It will simply crack your Windows installation, if you have this then you're fine, except Microsoft might be slightly disappointed in you.

  8. Pcthreat Jul 5, 2011

    If the tool is uncertified by original software developers and it modifies an Original Windows installation, it is unknown what might follow after the WAt removal.
    Maybe the Tool creates a security hole which may lead to malware attacks?
    Have Any of You tested and are sure?

  9. Lee J. D. Jul 11, 2011

    Yes, i have. after a month of running a wpakill'd installation in a virtualbox being monitored by wireshark, there is zero traffic which i can't account for. pcthreat, on the other hand is making dubious and non technical claims. "you may be asked to extract certain files".. "system settings may change".. Who wrote this? it doesn't sound like a security researcher. shame on you for scaring people into buying crapware.

    "Remove HackTool.Wpakill registry entries:
    RUNNING PROGRAM\winlogon.exe
    RUNNING PROGRAMwinlogon.exe"

    Are you serious?
    Have you ever been in windows registry?

  11. The_Lemming_Leper Oct 3, 2011

    WAT and WPA removal allows YOU to take control of your pc while running Windows.
    Otherwise every time you change your system's hardware a bit MS nags you to reactivate your windows.

    For PC enthusiasts it is either WAT removal or just run Linux. MS nags the hell out of you otherwise.

    love this hack problem, installed it in 3 computers, just have to set my anti-virus not to filter it out.

  13. IT_Guy999 Dec 3, 2011

    I've been using Wpakill for a couple years with no issues at all. I got tired of dealing with MS every time I upgraded my hardware. I bought a legal copy WinXP. It belongs to me!!! And I'll use it how, when and where I want. Wpakill has allowed me to do just that.

  14. Yomama the Elf Dec 8, 2011

    gotta love anything that gives Microsoft the finger. :) Thanks wpakill!

    After using this "tool" you can't use windows update anymore... use a better, available save tool and you can use windows update and all other genuine benefits ;)

  17. Be Careful.... Jun 22, 2012

    ..On the crap you read, like many people said before its just to remove the Windows Product Activation, my computers been running fine. Lol at whoever wrote this, good try on trying to scare people who are not knowledgeable enough.

    Hm... A hacktool with glowing reviews. Let's put it this way. It can't be too damn innocent, considering an antivirus prog. just reported it installed on my system after a clean install of Windows on a formatted drive, immediately after visiting a porn site, and when I've never needed/used/installed it myself. That speaks volumes in my book.

  22. Bob Jan 23, 2014

    I have to crack up at the various comments. This file is from either precracked versions of windows, typically windows 7, or an installation that someone has used the remove wat utility on. Really windows loader and various other programs are much better than this since they allow for an "activated" version of windows if you really want updates and the other stuff that takes up needless space on your disc. Oh and lol @ all the choches QQing about "it hacks your system!!!!"

  26. Bill Gates Jan 18, 2015

    I already learned that corporations like Microsoft are dangerous, greedy and corrupt. They make enough money already. F*ck Microsoft.

  27. MS Sucks May 1, 2015

    Are you kidding me? Has anyone checked what is inside windows updates lately? Talk about malicious! They need hotfixes and patches just to fix what they ruin. MS *****!
