I understand that she likes Windows 7 (even if it is a starter) but
as you say, she is going to be going to college. In the meantime have
have you thought about using the re-arm command so you can get up
to 120 days free legally?
I say this because once she is attending college, she will be entitled to
free copies of Microsoft Windows 7 Professional which if she likes Starter, then
surely she's gonna like that even more!
I explained to a guy yesterday who was after a free copy of Microsoft Office suite 2007
(which by the way is not available through MSDNAA anymore)
that as a student, Microsoft has a worldwide program allowing students access to free or heavily discounted software.
If you didn't already know about this, I suggest you go and have a look at these sites: MSDN Academic Alliance Home Page
(MSDNAA) Microsoft Office Discount for Students - It's Not Cheating
(Microsoft Office discounted for students)
In the meantime, if you would like to rearm the software (Starter), I am not 100% sure
if you ARE able to do it with that version but I can't see why not, and if you give it a go
and it doesn't work then the worst that's gonna happen is that you get thrown an error message.
Type ANY ONE of the following commands into the command prompt (Rus as admin) to rearm. Note that you should wait until lets say the 29th day of your 30 day grace period before rearming if you want to rearm for maximum days and considering that you are only able to rearm up to 120 days. sysprep /generalize slmgr.vbs rearm rundll32 slc.dll,SLReArmWindows slmgr /rearm Reboot when finished
