I believe this thread was locked unfairly. Partitioning software ruined my Windows 7 ! I don't agree with his claim that the partitioning software is what caused the problem but thats a different subject. No where in the thread do they suggest they are pirating windows. Pirating windows was a conclusion that was derived from downloading a torrent. There is nothing wrong with using torrents if activation is not being circumvented. No where in the thread do they suggest this is what they are trying to do. The user ran into a problem and TechSpot failed to help. TechSpot slammed the door in this users face calling them a pirate before asking if this is what they were trying to do. The user was asking for advice and now that the thread has been locked no one could even try. TechSpot even lost the chance to explain that what they may have been doing was considered pirating if they didn't use their own activation key. The thread could have been steered in the right direction but instead it was prematurely locked. Please explain to me how this thread could be 100% tied to pirating.
