Vista random validation?


I was just posting in another thread and a little window popped up saying 'Validating Windows'... I validated when I installed Vista RC2.

Is there going to be random spot check for validation in Vista or is this a normal WGA thing? I removed it from my XP install right after it was released, and I havent used XP much since RC1 came out.

from the last i saw everytime you go on windows update it will check, if it finds out that ur not valid then they will lock you out of alot of feature....
