There is no limit to re-installs as far as Im aware, other than it can not be activated on more than 1 PC at a time.
Unless its OEM, in which case it can only be re-installed on the same machine.


You may need to call MS to get activated if you re-install/activate excessively though.
But every few months shouldn't pose a problem.

Re-read my previous post please. The answer is already there.
If you need more than 1 license, you may want to look into the family pack. It allows for 3.

so Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD, English at TigerDirect.com has only 1 license key? if you get an another computer and want to install and activate windows 7 on that one can you deactivate the key and activate it on the new one you got?
