Windows Defender detects my scripts as “HackTool:BAT/AutoKMS”

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on

Based on testing on some Windows devices, I have just relized that Microsoft disallowed to use KMS scripts in the recent update. To reconfirm this, I uploaded a batch script file to VirusTotal and here is the result.

There is no offical reason or notification and it just was a quiet event. I think many you guys here were surprised, even shocked as soon as you heard this news. However, Microsoft’s move this time is easy to understand.

1. Batch script is not recommended anymore

KMS commands are developed by Microsoft but the batch scripts are not. They are just contain a batch of KMS commands and written by individuals like me. My purpose of creating the scripts is help you guys save your time instead of running all commands, one by one in the command prompt or Windows power shell. But this method has never been treated as an official method because opening batch file with admin rights is not recommended by Microsoft. For example, if the author inserts the command formatting disk into the script, all you data will be lost.

2. Batch script is used to fleece others

As you know, my Paypal accounts has been limited permanently because many people reported me to Paypal and said that I had sold them fake product keys on eBay. Someone has used my name to create an online shop and sell all my scripts. He told buyers a brazen lie that the scripts he sold is the new generation of digital license. It goes without saying people who are willing to spend a few dozen of dollars to order them have never known my site and my work. And they are willing to report the author of the scripts too when they realized the truth without finding out carefully. 🙁

The move of Microsoft will clear all opportunists and swindlers and I’m all for it. I will replace the KMS scripts from all my posts with the manual method in the coming time. Finally, I would like to thank you guys for always standing by my side. Your support and your encouragement mean a lot to me. It only remains for me to thank.

    My antivirus says that MS Windows 10 is spyware and nagware and that I should remove it. So I did and activated my computer using Linux.

      what where you doing before this error took place.
      that error usually happens during an update error.. My advice to anyone before upgrading, is to use DISM at the prompt as ADMIN, to correct your image and then run SFC /scannow.

      Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
      then
      sfc /scannow

      All KMS commands, should be done as ADMIN at the prompt.

    I have used both activation methods with great success on many different devices. Just earlier today (April 21st, 2020) I used the batch file on an Insignia tablet. All I had to do was white list the program and it had no issues. Turned on Windows Defender and no issues. Love this site and all you have done! Thank you!!

    I upgraded home to pro, using two keys, and not reinstalled windows pro from scratch., as a result of getting the error about CORE and Non core key. I first setup KMS server using /skms option at the cmd prompt. Then you turn on Airplane Mode, then put the key into activation windows in System Settings. It then does the upgrade from home to pro without installing windows pro— I then Put in the Key that is listed in the script, manually at the command prompt because even though the upgrade happened, it isn’t activated on the NON core key, but it is pro. Now this where the bug takes place– because of the bug in KMS software, It now accepts the GVLK (pro key) and switches from non core to core and activation is done using the /ipk option at command prompt.
    by the way, I have windows defender running on my computer.
    anyone needing help, let me know.

      Dude, you are a GENIUS. Thank you for posting this! I spent hours researching the “non-core” error (c004f069 in my case). Yes it seems the secret is to set the activation server to kms8.msguides.com BEFORE changing the key, then setting Airplane mode (I wonder if pulling the network cable would be good enough…), then using the Settings, System, About screen to change the key (instead of the command prompt). Mine accepted the Enterprise key posted on the other article on this site and immediately forced a restart as it added the features from Home to Enterprise. Then back to the command prompt to set the activation to kms8.msguides.com, then I took it out of Airplane mode to re-enable network connectivity, then I activated. Bam. Worked like a champ!

        That’s great. Thanks. There is another trick I recall doing, and that was, in the past, to /ipk the pro key from DOS, I may have also /skms first changing the server, and tweaked the REG entry in by labeling HOME entry to PRO instead in order to accept the PRO key using /IPK. This was done because I had an error trying to do a KEY change UPGRADE in place thus turning on the locked features of PRO using an Upgrade key. However, it used to work fine in windows 8 before.
        However, I did document this and archived the method. So what happens is, when I twaaked the Registry, I was then able to /ipk a prokey. Then I ran windows setup telling it to install but keep programs/personal files, and it did the new OS upgrade, witihout having to backup, and it installed prol too automantically. Then afterwareds, I did /ATO and it activated. And if you forget, and the KMS is changed, after reboot, it will call to the server and auto activate.

          The Pro Keys I used in reference to core / non core error activation solution, were found using..
          tenforums Generic WINDOWS 10
          ..string in google search and you will find the page has two columns with keys, I will not post the Pro keys here, nor will I post the link.
          For those who Need Wins 7/8/10 and Office and other programs from MS, go to Heidoc, and download their Windows Downloader program, Great program. For those who have OLD links that don’t work on the web anymore, and not deleted them, I have tricks on using them to get them to download. IN fact, I can still download GENUINE Windows 7 ISO without any special software and even VISTA, And XP … GENUINE, just using chrome.

            Yes, the Generic/Retail (Pro) key you mentioned helped me to “flip” 10 Home to Pro on a Toshiba laptop. It wouldn’t accept the keys provided here on msguides and gave me the “non core” error. But the generic pro key triggered the upgrade, of course it won’t activate a generic key, but after changing it again back to a “real” pro key it activated! Thanks!!

    Once I let your script thru the virus protection, it appears to have run successfully. We shall see 😉 and thank you!

      what do you mean, it is not working. You must have some kind of error message and the only one I have seen is the CORE /NON CORE error related when trying.

    I have downloaded Microsoft Office 365 Pro Plus, but whenever I tried to activate it……
    It activates Microsoft Office 2016 instead.

    When I check the Control panel>>Installed programs, I see
    Microsoft Office 365 Pro Plus, When I check…File>>Options>>Account, Microsoft Office 2016 is activated.
    What caused this…How can it be fixed?
    Windows Defender also, detects my scripts as “HackTool:BAT/AutoKMS””

    Well buddy you clearly have no clue about the nature of your activites it seems or you are playing dumb 😀

    Your CMD file contains not only various illegitimate windows product serial numbers to begin with it also clearly shows that you route the activation sequence to your OWN modified keymanagement server which is ofc the simple no brain method to activate a windows system illegaly and has been around for a decade or more. Im sure anyone here with a brain is aware of that and those who are not be applauded for your naive nature.

      Do the MS lose a lot with the piracy? Of course they lose.

      Is it a cri mi na l action? Yes, but if wasn’t he, the MS probably would never discover that, and besides that, he is improving the MS security.

      Go fck youself singham, this man is a legend.

    I activated windows on my laptop using the multiple CMD codes (slmgr /) a while back before Microsoft ruined it. After the update, I was never able to activate windows again. Well, the laptop I activated has been getting legit windows notifications that my activation will end soon (as of January 26, 2020). Every time I boot up I get the message as a banner through the middle of my screen. Will the activation actually expire or is it something I can ignore. It does not really bother me but still making sure.

    Hi my freind.
    Even though windows defender sees your script its easy to block it. Just tell windows defender to allow it. Then turn off windows defender. Run your script and boom it still works.
    However my copy of your script got deleted by windows defender before I figured out how to fix it. I had a few copies of it but each one got deleted.
    Could you post it one more time? Or email it to me?
