You must have a legally activated copy of Seven to obtain help. Why dont you activate your copy?
If you have an activated copy and are asking how long will it last the answer is until you reinstall.

With a legit, legal copy, as mentioned, it will last until you reinstall, or you start making some hardware changes...then it my prompt to be reactivated.

If you bought your machine with Windows pre-installed, Windows activated itself at every boot using the OEM_SLP Key.
If you installed windows from a retail or OEM System builder disk, then it would have demanded activation within 30 days of install.

If you installed a hacked copy, anything could happen.

we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

I have been operating win 7 (2 copies) bought at Newegg since the year it came out. Only one asked me to
activate and I really didn't have to because I was using it on only one computer. Stupid Microsoft!!!

You haven't actually explained a problem or an issue yet, and you're already blaming Microsoft?

post an MGADiag report from either or both machines

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
