Windows 7 from softonlineseller?????

  malcgood72 21:27 09 Oct 2010

In the middle of May I got Windows 7 download from for £65. now 5 months later guess what, my PC tells me it's not genuine. have gone, and Paypal say I needed to kick off before 45 days of perchase. I know I'm an idiot, but the fact that I paid through Paypal was the real seller, how could they deal with anyone dodgy?

Contact Microsoft, they may well 'Genuine-ise' (is there such a word?) it for you.

It shouldn't take from May to October to flag up that Windows isn't genuine. It could be corruption in the registry so try running System Restore to see if that sorts it.

Thanks guys, I've done a system restore only for the same thing to happen immediately.
I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullit and buy one from a shop, in a box and shrink wrapped.

I bought a copy from 'Software4students' for approx £40..only issue is that you have to have someone in the family who is still in my case my granddaughter, and you need to have either XP professional or Vista already installed on your PC..They ask for the name of the education centre which the person still at in education attends and they will only supply one copy to your address unless you can prove you have more than one person still in education..they ask a lot of questions..! I needed a second copy for my grandson's PC and after a chat on the phone they supplied it ok...all genuine..!
