Bootleg quirks

  • K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 2.1.0 was originally mislabeled as "K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 1.71 ".
  • The watermark is now visible across all of the OS.
  • When the RunOnce segment first starts, it will attempt to look for the Norton 2007 executable. But the thing is that it has to be extracted first. It is never actually done, so the EXE never appears and it will show an error.
  • A bunch of files get dropped to the root of the C: drive.
    • Serial key for Alcohol 120%, brought to you by
    • Adobe Flash Player 9 Plugin for Mozilla Firefox
    • FlashGet 1.8x Tweaker by REATeAm
    • HJSplit 2.2
