Thank you

If Windows 7 is not accepting the Product Key, than it may have been made invalid on the Microsoft Server.

What you will need to do is activated your version of Windows via the phone.

To do this, please do the following

Open the Start Menu (click the Windows Logo button, and type slui.exe 4 and press Enter.

Click on the drop down menu and select the nearest location to you for a toll free number to call, then click on the Next button.

A local phone number should apear under the Step 1 section with a set of installation ID numbers generated by Windows and displayed on your screen.

Call the activation phone number

At first, the activation line will be automated, so you will be asked to enter or speak the installation ID numbers displayed on your screen into the phone.

If you want to speak to an activation operator and bypass the automated service, then do nothing instead until you are transferred automatically to an available operator.

If the automated activation service informs you that it was unsuccessful and cannot help you with activation, then STAY ON THE LINE and your call will be transferred to an activation operator who will assist you in activating your copy of Windows 7. If you get hanged up on while waiting, then phone back, but this time DO NOT respond when the ansafone requests which service you require (twice). This puts you in the queue to speak to an opertor, and doesn't seem to time out so quickly. The operator will give you a confirmation ID number if they agree your copy of Windows 7 is legitimate.

NOTE: Just explain to the operator your situation and what you did to require activation. (EX: hardware upgrade, installed Windows 7 on a new computer after uninstalling it from the old one, etc...)

Type in the confirmation ID number given to you to be able to activate Windows 7, and click on Next.

NOTE: You will get these numbers from the phone automated system or operator after they have confirmed the numbers you gave them.

When you get the Activation was successful window, click on Close to finish.

Windows is than registered and you will not need to worry about the product key

If you have any difficulties, please do not hesitate to let me know

Thank you
