After running Win 7 Home Premuim for about 2 weeks now, very happy with it. I was most annoyed at MS however - a few days ago I was in my Bios, having found renewed interest in my PC (now that it does not crash every couple hours) and I decided to switch off the WLAN features on the motherboard as I never have and probably never will network this PC. I figured that the less unneccessary stuff hogging resources the better.
Well, Win 7 announced a short while later that it had detected "hardware or driver
changes" and that I had to re-activate it. I tried to do this online but it insisted I would have to do this via the phone. So I played tone dialling with the MS voice sythesiser and reactivated my OS.
This to me is ridiculous and now I probably have wasted a license re-install for when I perhaps want to reformat in the future.
It was a simple bios setting Microsoft!!!
