"The phone home has been confirmed when using CDDB but it doesn't seem to happen every time.
It looks like the *.cnt file is now randomly named.
It's normally stored in the 'windows' or 'winnt' directory depending on your OS.
Aparently legal users are getting bugged by this too.
Delete the *.cnt file or whatever it's called to enter the serial again.
More users have reported the turd file as 'SPOOF32.HID' & 'PROXIES.VID', so it looks like it
could be called anything now.
To help find the turd file being used search for a prog called 'Filemon'.
When you get busted using CDDB close AG, go straight to explorer, c:\windows\, sort by date, check the files time&dated just moments ago.
Once you have found the turd file, try this...
Open the turd in notepad.
Delete the text.
Set the properties of the file to READ-ONLY.
Goto back into AG and register with the same serial as before.
It 'should' now stay reg'd no matter what."
