Windows 7 Ultimate x64

What better way to start off on the forum than.. finding a thread that's half a decade old and being able to contribute to a little nostalgia.I am STILL running my original install from the first week of november 2009,as it has been nearly 6 years lol the OS is starting to show a little wear and tear! i've always had a reliable firewall installed but have none the less had to manually gut out the occasional malware,but she keeps chugging along,albeit a little slow and rough around the edges.So to all you chatters from way back in 2010 how many of you are still rocking the old grampa that is Windows 7 rtm with 3,441,792 updates installed? and the original install not a cloned image lol! I'll ride the wave as long as I can,especially in this day & age where we have to deal with metro-ish OS's(Windows 8,Windows 10) a little nostalgia might bring a smile to someone's face.

How To Install Another Win7 S/N after Original Install
So, I have a LEGIT (HONESTLY) copy of Win7 Ent. on 3 PC's that I use, but aren't actually mine. It so happens that I'm going to be moving, and thus, will likely have to give up those PC's. So, here's what I want to do. Of course, I'll upload all of MY data files to a cloud, which are on separate...

I just did a repair install due to a virus situation. The install went fine, of course, but it requires re-activating. I made a backup of my original install after activation. My questions is, if I activate the repair install, will that change the records with Microsoft in such a way as to...
