If you have downloaded and installed Windows 10 on your machine, then you have to check whether you’ve already got cracked version of software or counterfeit games running on your PC, while the latest addition to the European License Agreement terms of conditions, Microsoft has full power to disable such pirated software and hardware, according to PC Authority report. If this gonna happen, there are many ways for this disabling solution, which you can get rid just by disabling Windows Defender on Windows 10. Tips that not official, but it works with many of the machines. Trust me it does work.
So Microsoft has power to disable any counterfeit software or hradware running Windows 10, at least this is what being interpreted based on the updated End User License Agreement (EULA). The new terms and conditions allow Microsoft to change or update software on your computer and changes to the EULA were first spotted by PC Authority.
Section 7b or ‘Updates to the Services or Software, and Changes to These Terms‘ under EULA, according to the report, Microsoft, “may automatically check your version of the software and download software update or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorised hardware peripheral devices.”
Now that as per the news, almost over 14 million machines running on Windows 10, it is still uncertain how Microsoft will be able to disable counterfeit or cracked software which includes its own Office suite. With Windows 10 Home, Pro, Microsoft has already made the software update mandatory, but the problem with this that a user might not even know when the update will hit and take place, and where Microsoft denied users the choice to say no to an update.
PC gamers on the other hand are been on hugely cracked and distributed across various channels, popular video games streaming services like Stream have been gaining strengths. Microsoft countermand its Windows Live Games in support of Steam with Windows 10.
Catch this point? If Microsoft blocking all the pirated games and softwares, is a good and understandable one, but what actually it means when by ‘unauthorised hardware peripheral devices’. Yes, it could be related tosoft’s Xbox game controllers which can now be used with any Windows 10 PC for gaming.
Currently, we have this report and what next is unknown?
