KMSPico is Key Management System to activate Microsoft products, like Windows and Office. Microsoft uses MAK (Multiple Activation Keys) and KMS (Key Management System) for activation of Windows in volume basis. MAK keys are used to phoning back to Microsoft’s server similarly clients using KMS activates Windows by phoning to KMS server in local network rather than Microsoft’s.
KMSPico replaces the original key with the volume licensed key and creates a emulated instance of KMS server locally avoiding online activation. So your Windows can not contact to online server and thinks that replaced license key as original. That’s why antivirus and Windows defender spots as a virus. This does not mean all KMSPico in the internet is real. If you download a fake KMSPico then your PC will be full of malware.
I am also using KMSPico and it is working well without giving problem to my machine. I also don’t use antivirus because I had not needed, windows defender works great (it does not means do not to use antivirus). Some site may tells that KMSPico is harmful (like this one) but it is only if you download and install a fake activator. I am providing some links. you can check what other users says about it.
There are many websites that claims to be official site of KMSPico but unfortunately there is no official site. There is a official forum for KMSPico (here’s the official forum, by the way) that contains KMSPico and other KMS Tools. You may need to signup to see and download from there. For convenient I have provided you the direct download link for KMSPico and other KMS Tools at the end of this post.
[UPDATE – HWID Windows Activator]
KMSPico is not updated for a long time. But it is still working. There is another better Windows activator (HWID) that does not detect as virus. Its is totally clean and can be uninstalled once used. Unlike KMSPico you do not need to reactivate Windows after certain time. Here is the download link to the Digital License (HWID) – https://www.reddit.com/r/sjain_guides/comments/9qyuij/hwidkms38genmk6_download_and_usage_guide/
Read the instruction before installing. Mostly activating using HWID mode works for Normal Windows 10 Home/Pro version. And it will require a internet connection.
