When will MS start their warning that time is running out?

The warning should pop up on your monitor's bottom right corner...

You are not the first one that asks a bit suspicious question, thus giving right to every member first to try to find out if your issue is valid and if you are using a legal, licensed version of Windows. Asking some harmless, polite questions is basically the only way to do this.

Owner, admins and mods on Seven Forums are working very hard to keep it legal. I hope you can understand and accept that. There's no room for piracy here, that's one of the things that separate us from many other Win7 based forums.

But, as you wish. I'm not going to answer with a question. I'm just saying that I am not going to answer before I know more. But don't worry, let time go by, and someone will answer you. There are always those who don't mind, at least until they are banned.

There are random "register soon" balloons up until 30 days. Once 30 days have passed, your desktop will be black and you will see a message that Windows is not genuine. However, you can extend the activation for up to a total of 120 days - all perfectly legal. There are guides on the 'net, if you don't know how to do it.

Honestly, I have no idea why people don't want to answer when a nag will appear.

Kegobeer, my reason is is simple: If you have a valid, legal Windows license, you have no reason to play "the grace game".

Also in this case, the OP's attitude in his response to Joel's simple and valid question was an additional reason.

Sorry, but that's nonsense. The OP didn't ask how to circumvent activation, the OP asked when notifications start appearing. That is not classified information.

Regarding not playing "the grace game": I have a Technet subscription. I routinely install Windows operating systems and don't bother to activate until 30 days pass. I test drivers, hardware configurations, etc. I have tons of valid, legal keys - do I have a reason to play the grace game?

The OP asked a question, only to be asked questions not at all related to the original question, calling into question the OP's intentions (basically calling the guy a thief). I'd probably respond in a similar way.

I'll bet you are not worried when the warnings come. When you get one, you either activate your copy or forget it.

The beauty of life: the right to have an opinion.
