In short, your friend can contact Microsoft, but I doubt that they'll do much for her.
I'd be pleased to be wrong about that. Let us know, if you like.
Thanks Bob I sort of reckoned that would be the case I think to save some time and effort I'll just clean the machine up and stick in a different HDD perhaps and an OEM.
I guess it would be a really hard call for Microsoft when they probably hundreds of such calls every day eh?
