I recently had the job of restoring a vista pc who's wga key (label on the pc) became invalid three years ago, and was finally infected by a bitcoin ransom ware file locker. Nobody wanted to help.with the wga thing, the ransomware reminded me of sony corporation
It now has a copy of linux on it and the files where backed up - it seems to suit the user.and the hardware still works
I would love to know why the wga key became invalid and being that i am not sure i could convince anybody to part with cash for a microsoft product and discover that they dont really own it.
I hope many people do what i did by looking at alternative solutions
