Seems okay but I would prefer a product sold by and shipped by the site buying from,
That is sold by a vender not Amazon directly which is often the case pretty much why I prefer Newegg.

You might search for local software distributes ?

For the record you have a oem slp so this would be better used as a clean install not just using the new activation key.

Recover your personal files and do a clean install.

OK. Great. Thanks for all the advice and help. I am still interested in why this suddenly went non genuine after years of being valid. Could it have been some Microsoft update that tightened up on the checking? Can't think of anything else.

Hi,
Yep some of the windows updates have been very good at detecting questionable installs
Don't loose the disk or the activation key
Best part about a clean install is you can use the disk as a startup repair... if you clean install using it

Think about upgrading to a ssd= solid state drive to clean install on.

I'd avoid the Amazon one - try this instead (I use these guys) - Microsoft Windows 7 OEM - Microsoft Windows 7 32-Bit 64-Bit OEM Software - Scan.co.uk
