displayed application path even when green)
* Cleaned up some code for better performance
* Added new GRLDR 0.94 from zsmin

Version 1.6.8
* Added application integrity checking. This is a new feature which will
display you with information about how the application was launched when
the mouse is hovered over the green or red icon. It's goal is to inform
you if you are running an untouched version of the application or one
that could have been modified in some way by a script kiddie. Of course
green is the best result, if it's red then be cautious as someone's
likely binded a trojan!

#    4   -   Arguments
#########################################################################
#
/silent
  Turns on silent mode

/restart
 Restart the OS after install (used with /silent)

/norestart
 Prevents system restart after successful installation

/preactivate
 This just helps the loader decide on it's environment

/bios
 Force the application to install just the certificate and serial

/loader
 Force the application to install the loader

/swap
 Install the loader without changing your systems boot code

/k=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
 Set the Windows 7/2008/Vista key

/c=
 Set the certificate (use the name of a certificate from the certificates
folder or from the SLIC list)

/s=
 Set the SLIC (Acer, Advent, Alienware, Asus, BenQ, Casper, Dell, Exper,
Founder, FSC, Fujitsu, Gigabyte, Haier, Hasee, HCL, HP, Jooyon, Lenovo,
LG, Medion, MSI, NEC, Nokia, Quanmax, Samsung, Sony, Tongfang, Toshiba,
Trigem, Viliv, Wartmann)

======
* If you don't set the certificate it will default to your BIOS's model
* If you don't set the SLIC it will default to your BIOS's model
* If you don't set the key it will default to your BIOS's model and the
correct one for the OS (Ultimate, Professional, Starter or Home Premium)
* You can use these arguments via SetupComplete.cmd to pre-activate
Windows 7/Vista/Server 2008
======

Example:
"D:\Windows Loader.exe" /silent /restart /k=342DG-6YJR8-X92GV-V7DCV-P4K27
/c=Acer /s=Acer


SetupComplete.cmd Example:

@ECHO OFF
%~dp0"Windows Loader.exe" /silent /preactivate
cd %~dp0
attrib -R -A -S -H *.*
SHUTDOWN /R /T 5
RMDIR /S /Q "%WINDIR%\Setup\Scripts"
exit

If a certificate or SLIC is released and I have not put out a new version
of my application
simply create two folders, one called "Certificates" and another called
"SLICs".

In each folder put the files you want to add support for, just be sure
you label the files
like this:

*Certificates folder*
Acer.XRM-MS
Advent.XRM-MS
Alienware.XRM-MS
Asus.XRM-MS


*SLICs folder*
Acer.BIN
Advent.BIN
Alienware.BIN
Asus.BIN


When using external files all preset internals will be ignored, this is a
cleaner approach
for users who want to build their own list without my presets getting in
the way.



Special thanks:
BobSheep, zsmin, Woota!? & lash78

Thanks:
Everyone who supports this project, you're all the reason I'm still
working on it.
