You can download an Excel database here, which lists over 8,000 education establishments in the US.

Generally speaking, any high school or university will qualify you and I've no doubt Microsoft would soon tell you if the establishment didn't fulfil their criteria for student software.

Contact Avast Support to ask for help reactivating your paid copy. In the future always back up Product Keys you pay for.

In the future audit your previous installation using Belarc Advisor as given in the steps I linked to get a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 Factory OEM so you have a printout of all of your installed Product Keys.

Ok, I'm sorry I didn't get your "Perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 Factory OEM"
I didn't think I was going to ever have to do that.

Anyway Thanks,
