What do you want now? A bloody medal? Grow up.

And for your information, we happen to be British citizens, not Britts as you stated. Let's start having a bit of respect for others please.
Speaking about respect ...... why does microsoft store automatically select "microsoft store France" when i visit that site ? Belgium is not France nor it is The Netherlands yeah let's have some respect i feel personally insulted

Many of those "auto-location detection" sites go by your ISP, so you most likely could direct your fury towards them and not Microsoft.

hi folks,

I Decided togo ahead and i purchased a wau from home premium to Ultimate.The purchase whas done in less then 5 minutes but i did receive the message indicating "Windows Anytime Upgrade whas not successfull" but i learned through experience todo my research first as explained here Windows Anytime Upgrade - How to all i needed todo whas manually reboot and the process did continue allthough microsoft may fix that bug (not a rant this time) it's simply annoying and might confuse newer users.Windows 7 does state in the activation section it is not activated and automatic activation will be attempted in 2 days (or something like that) clicking the "activate now" link activates windows online

thank you Microsoft for the verry fast upgrade proces.
