Awesome, thanks for the help with everything. I mailed the software to Microsoft and am in the waiting to see what happens attitude states. I'm staying positive that everything will work out in my favor.

Best to you and now the pints are flowing

Well I heard back from Microsoft today regarding my counterfeit software that I mailed back to them and they basically told me that since I didn't pay enough for my fake copy, they weren't willing to give me another copy. I guess my $65 US dollars wasn't good enough to qualify for a free copy even though I turned them onto the fake and the seller I bought it from.

Pity, but I can see their point - $65 for a $300 product should have been a red flag in itself.

You can still purchase a Get Genuine Kit - or a full retail license (which is actually a better proposition in the long run).

Well, just figured that if someone upgraded to Win 8 that they wouldn't need the Win 7 anymore and that it still wouldn't be worth what it was 3 years ago now that it has been superseded by a newer version. That's even what the guy told me that sold it to me and since the packaging was in a shrink wrapped manufacturers box with perfect graphics and lettering on it. Well, I'll look into your recommendations but will prob just upgrade to Win 8 now. What are your thoughts on that?

I prefer Windows 7 for desktops/laptops - but Win 8 for tablets and similar.
