The time when you had to go to the store to purchase everything seems so long go. Now all you have to do is open your computer, laptop or even smartphone and find an online store that offers the merchandise that you want, order it, pay for it and then wait for it in your comfortable chair in front of the TV or computer desk. Now you can even buy software directly on the Internet. You can buy Driver detective if you want to save a lot of time and energy and find out in a few moments which drivers from your computer need to be updated and which drivers are compatible with all your computer’s hardware components.
Of course, this online trade and especially the buying and selling of software is a bit complicated. For example the software suppliers had to think of a trick to prevent their customers from giving the software to someone else, too, who could then use it without a license and without paying for it. So they invented the activation code. This code is given to you the moment you purchase the software, either in the store or online and you will need it when you install the software – just like when installing the operating system on your computer.
You can’t perform the complete installing of the software unless you introduce the Driver Detective activation code. This code is unique for every purchase and it can be used only once . If you try to use the same code later, on a different computer, it won’t work and it will display you a message telling you that this code had already been used.
All these were done in order to protect the software suppliers and make the customers pay for the product and not use it for free. This Driver Detective activation code is actually a sequence of numbers and letter that are arranged in a certain order and which also separates these sequences by using “-”. Here is an example of such an activation code: e7cfc8a6-253a-445a-b35c-36f0ce49e5c9. When you are required to write the code, just copy it in the respective window and then press “Next” or OK and then this code will be searched in a huge data base containing all these activation codes to see if it is still valid or not. Only after the answer returns and says it is still available you can finish installing Driver Detective.
However, every once in a while, some guys will try to get these activation codes for free, without purchasing the software package and ask on different forums and all over the Internet if anyone has some of these codes to share. And the ones who are willing to share are usually the ones who either cracked the original software or those who take advantage of the popularity of some software and turn it into a computer virus, hoping to get valubale information from yours. So beware of the too shiny gifts from the people you don’t know.11
