It's much better, in my opinion, to mount it with something like Daemon Tools. Unless you have Windows 8 which has iso mounting built in. :)

Thats really cool, I never even saw that feature because my .iso files were defualted to PowerISO so explorer never gave me the option to mount. I just changed the default to explorer and now as soon as i click on the file a new tab opens on the ribbon with the option to mount. :)

Hey everyone,

I used www.cheapgk.com quiet a bit and it's been good for most part, but then some keys started to stop working and Windows would start showing "Not Genuine" messages.

Before I started using them (two years ago if not more) I did some research and didn't find much info on them, so decided to try and bought a few keys which seemed to work, so I kept buying. But again after time some stopped working. They replaced a few but later when I wrote again about others they don't seem to be responsive or willing to replace it, I'm still trying to argue with them to get it replaced but not sure what will happen, and worried a bit that the keys I installed (many) will stop working and clients will be unhappy and start asking me. I already put time into exchanging emails and fixing keys they replaced.

It seems also like the person that would respond changed, the email I received said they changed "staff". Don't know if that's true but I guess there are a few people involved. Since the previous person seemed more polite and said they appreciate my business, while the new one seems very brief and seems careless.

Anyway I decided to do some research again to see if anybody else had any problems... Has anyone here had any problems?

I am fairly frustrated with this situation. I'm afraid the keys will stop working and the company/guy will disappear somewhere.

Most of the keys I bought by PayPal as form of payment, and I could most likely get the refund as per PayPal's protection plan etc. But I don't really want to do that as I know then they will disable all other keys and I would need to explain to clients that they need to pay the full price. And I would need to pay full price for keys I bought for myself and friends etc. Microsoft activation doesn't give any details about this, I guess all they can tell is if the key is activated or not but they don't have any other details.
I wish I could figure out if these keys are really legit or they just grab them from some program at Microsoft which expire after time. I mean the biggest question is where they get them or at least why are they stopping to work? That would help understand if to keep using them or not.

And now they are using Amazon. Unlike PayPal it probably will not give a refund in case of a problem or fraud or other.

And of course now I doubts about purchasing from them, especially for clients, but even for my self...

If anyone knows anything let me know!

PS: Their domain is registered in WA. Might be real or fake I don't know. And they changed their domain few times, and also email. I am not sure and haven't looked into this yet but seems like their email is showing as spam also because is not valid, they are probably hiding their original IP somehow or something... I wonder if they are just being shut down by Microsoft or other organization for fraud... This is disappointing I probably shouldn't have used them. Thinking what to do now...

What do you mean when you say that the key stops working after time, the key or the program?
IME the key stops working but it's not the end of the world.

IME the key stops working but it's not the end of the world.

I mean that there is generic "Windows is not genuine, you may be a subject of counterfeit software" message  coming up each time someone logs on. The background and some basic features are also disabled. The key used doesn't activate if re-entered on same computer that has this problem.

About the "end of world" of course not but it is a big problem especially in business where users start to panic seeing such signs. And until I tell them things like they can still exit the message and use Word and other parts they won't know to do it. And again some features are disabled and the screen doesn't look nice with the "not genuine" message, not to mention that it comes up each time someone logs on.
So your comment about "end of world" is not relevant or reasonable.

IME the key no longer works to reactivate on another machine (new ones generally did,) but the programs themselves worked fine without popups or anything. Obviously in your case it is pretty bad.

Did you try using the key for more than one machine or one key per machine?

I hate when people say that.
It's level of risk is almost completely proportionate to the brains of the person behind the screen.

how often are torrents like these infected and if they are, how easy will it be to clean up the mess?
