HI Kurohoshi00

You can input your purchased key via

Control panel >> system >> click on -- change product key

No re-install required

Be advised that even your new key coud be non-genuine,
once input suggest you run this tool, copy/paste the output, i'll cast an eye over it

Yes, I'm sure you will. You're in the Philippines. Isn't that a year's wages?
