Another way is to go to my computer> system properties. Down at the bottom you should see if it is activated with a genuine windows seal or how many days left for activation. Also on another note would you please go into your user cp (top of page) and fill in you system specs. It goes along way in getting help from others. Thanks and welcome to sevenforums. Fabe
