activate office with cmd commands


Go to solution Solved by AdvancedSetup,

Recommended Posts

activate office with cmd commands that I found online, I needed them for a school project, I'm not one to use pirated programs or anything like that, but I really needed to use office.

I entered two pages to use the cmd commands, the first did not work for me, the second did it on the third try, here I leave the link of the pages.

I suspect that my computer is infected with some kind of virus, so I turn to you, the Malwarebites forum, to help me check if it is, and if so, what should I do.

Hello  and  :welcome:    @Gabriel205

 

My screen name is AdvancedSetup and I will assist you with your system issues.

We will not support actively pirating of any software. Please uninstall all Microsoft Office applications before we begin.
 

Let's keep these principles as we proceed. Make sure to read the entire post below first.

  • Please follow all steps in the provided order and post back all requested logs
  • Please attach all log files to your post, unless otherwise requested
  • Temporarily disable your antivirus or other security software first. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans have been completed.
  • Temporarily disable Microsoft SmartScreen to download the software below if needed. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
  • Searching, detecting, and removing malware isn't instantaneous and there is no guarantee to repair every system.
  • Before we start, please make sure that you have an external backup, not connected to this system, of all private data.
  • Do not run online games while the case is ongoing. Do not do any free-wheeling or risky web-surfing.
  • Only run the tools I guide you to use. Please don't run any other scans, download, install or uninstall any programs while I'm working with you.
  • Cracked, Hacked, or Pirated programs are not only illegal but also can make a computer a malware victim.
  • Having such programs installed is the easiest way to get infected. It is the leading cause of ransomware encryption. It is at times also a big source of current Trojan infections.
  • If there are any on the system you should uninstall them before we proceed.
  • Please be patient and stick with me until I give you the "all clear". We don't want to waste your time, please don't waste ours.
  • If your system is running Discord, please be sure to Exit it while this case is ongoing.

 

To begin, please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your installation for troubleshooting. This is a report only.

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained are safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  • In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file
  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine
  • A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to the Public desktop, please upload that file on your next reply

Thank you

You really don't appear to have a lot on the computer without this. You may want to consider simply doing a CLEAN install of Windows which would restore the safety and security of Windows

Ok, I was considering doing a clean install of the system, but I had some doubts.

When a computer gets infected with some kind of virus, is it enough to perform a clean system installation to remove all viruses?

and another query

After using the cmd commands to activate the office, I wanted to know if my computer has some kind of virus.

I want to make it clear that I do not use pirated programs of any kind, I just wanted to confirm if my computer was sick with a virus, this will allow me to improve my way of browsing the Internet and how I interact with various programs.

But that is not all

Many of my acquaintances activate the office with cmd commands, because they think it is very safe compared to KMS activating programs.

so since I activated the office with cmd since I urgently needed it at the time, I decided to ask the malwarebytes community if my computer contracted some kind of virus after its activation (illegal), and if so, I could test my friends and acquaintances that this type of activation compromises and puts the security of your personal data and your Windows system at risk.

So my computer was infected?

I apologize if I wasted your time.

No, it's not. It is actually the best time to consider a CLEAN install.

and another query

After using the cmd commands to activate the office, I wanted to know if my computer has some kind of virus.

I don't see a virus but there have not been any new viruses in a decade or more. Most infections are Trojans and Ransomware these days, and the computer is infected.

I want to make it clear that I do not use pirated programs of any kind, I just wanted to confirm if my computer was sick with a virus, this will allow me to improve my way of browsing the Internet and how I interact with various programs.

All of these methods are THEFT, STEALING, PIRATING, ETC. and against the law in almost every country in the world.

so since I activated the office with cmd since I urgently needed it at the time, I decided to ask the malwarebytes community if my computer contracted some kind of virus after its activation (illegal), and if so, I could test my friends and acquaintances that this type of activation compromises and puts the security of your personal data and your Windows system at risk.

LibreOffice is 100% FREE and is very compatible with Microsoft Office and can normally open, read, print, etc their file formats.  There is no need to steal software

Yes

I apologize if I wasted your time.

No waste of time. Hopefully you've learned something

These are NOT part of a CLEAN install of Windows. The Microsoft Office is the one in question that is pirated. As said, we will not assist with pirating of software.

These are not bad, but they're not part of a clean installation of Windows either.

VLC media player (HKLM\...\VLC media player) (Version: 3.0.16 - VideoLAN)
 

These settings may be valid depending on what software you have installed or how you have the environment setup, but again, they are not part of a clean installation of Windows.

Recommendation for your DNS settings

Your current DNS Servers:  192.168.43.164

Please consider changing your default DNS server settings. Please choose one provider only

DNS is what lets users connect to websites using domain names instead of IP addresses

Pick just one of these 4 providers. And be aware that you need to modify 1 time for IPv4 & a 2nd pass for IPv6

  • Google Public DNSIPv4   8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4   IPv6   2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844
  • CloudflareIPv4   1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1   IPv6   2606:4700:4700::1111 and 2606:4700:4700::1001
  • OpenDNSIPv4   208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220  IPv6  2620:119:35::35 and 2620:119:53::53

I think there was a misunderstanding, the previous record that attached if it was the registry of my computer after having performed a clean installation of the system, after having done so I proceeded to update the Windows, after that download some useful programs for me, the office ltsc 2021 download it from the official Microsoft website following the steps of its implementation, Deploy Office LTSC 2021 - Deploy Office | Microsoft Learn , I plan to purchase an OEM license.
other programs were VLC, Adobe Acrobat Reader and PowerToys.

But I realize that it was not the best decision, since it generated a confusion with the first registration that led to the assumption that I do not perform a clean installation of the system. 

in any case here is the new registry of my system after performing another clean installation of windows, do not install or uninstall any program or update

a question, can I install the latest updates of my machine with Windows Update?, since I have been working with you on the fixes of my machine, I have not updated my drivers, nor the latest updates of Windows Defender, since I perform a clean installation of the system, and it would not hurt to update the latest features of Windows Update,    It's just a mention.
