Mmm im not sure if this is genuine &/Or worth the gamble! im running on W7 (64 bit) Ultimate BUT its the BETA version & i am so happy with it i want to buy the FULL licence Key/Program! i have the beta version on my hard drive so when i do a fresh instal im prompted as norm by the program for the key where i can just input any genuine key so to save a HUGE amount of money ive found this & wanted to know is it worth taking the risk.??

... do you really need to ask?

You've been on this forum long enough now surely to know better than to ask such a naive question.

I'm very surprised that you need to ask this question. You can only get a genuine installation key from Microsoft, and you cannot convert a beta version of Windows7 to a full release version - nor would you want to.

You must buy the software like everyone else.

There's this saying I once heard. How does it go now? A fool and his money are...

Ive asked a simple question on something ive never dealt with before, i didnt know you could buy a key like this & im supprised with "Spark6" reply! have you never had a question to ask.? i simply didnt know if its genuine as there adverts state there genuine & i wouldnt of thought Ebay would of let them sell them if there not genuine.?

FE thankx for letting me know you cannot convert a BETA version to the full! i wasnt sure if the key mad any differance.?

If you are offended by my comment I apologise. Before making it I was aware that you have posted a number of topics for discussion in the past and therefore were in a position to have known, from numerous other members, that these scams occur, not only on Ebay, but many other sites. Check it out!

will stop working eventually - sometime in March next year if it's the Release Candidate - so you'll need to buy the full version if you want to carry on using Windows 7.

Simple answer mate...Its ' no Pro.... and certainly a big "Con" ....Keep well clear ! These guys' know all the scams...and it hasn't taken em' long to get into the marketplace with their "trash" ...Avoid !!
