Hi kari... Well, if we have people reading more in a question that has been asked i have no idea where were going. May i ask where was your wife last night ?

If you know or don't know don't answer the question !! On your theory i have the right to ask as you could be doing something that would bar you from this site. How ridiculous !

I'm sorry but if you read your post again you have come to a conclusion an answer to my question could lead me to do something legal..I hope you don't live in Arizona.

lets leave it at that as we have more important things to do, I'm sure.
Keep the Faith

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.
Thank you Sir for your complete answer to my very 1st question also your response to kari.
I owe you 24 of Molson Canadian , oh no ! that would be a bribe.. the kari rule. cheers

Weird thread went ended in a very weird way...

Why didn't you just run it for 30 days without activating? It'll throw the warning, and you'd know when, when it comes... There's no risk involved... I still wonder though...

Why?

The wife question is really out of topic, we all know that you have a copy of Windows, and you know the grace period, yet you asked when the warnings will start to pop up... It's going to pop up sooner or later, why not just punch the code in...? It's not like no one knows about the grace period, or no one knows that there's a "rearm" method to increase the grace period...

Why wait? Why?

I'm not accusing you of anything, but there's a lot who asked about these kind of questions to "prepare" them selves in time to search for activation circumvention tools... I hope you're not one of them...

If you have installed a legal copy of Windows 7 you already know the answer to the Question.
As soon as you finish installing it tells you that you have 30 days to activate and every time you start the program it tells you how many days you have left.

Well. i thought i put this to bed ,( there's that wife question again. )

If you have the time to post your last message, i don't have the time to answer your questions as I'm cleaning my basement and workshop after being flooded by a horrendous rain and wind storm with thousands of dollars of damage. So please just go way i have no time for childless games." I'm not a crock" Nixon 11.

I'm trying to be polite... Kegobeer answered my one line question, you didn't. So it be . Amen.

hi Brian.. let me assure you i have a legal copy of Windows 7 ( two in fact) purchased from Future Shop on the 2nd day of the official release. Any person being that foolish to put an illegal OS on a computer is just plan stupid and I'm not stupid.

I did not see the notices you mentioned as I did not sit with the computer after inputing the opening Q. i have a thousand other things going at this time and it's possible the unit may have taken some water from a window above my desk... I'm on another unit.

KEGOBEER did not mention the notice at start up in his earlier reply to me. perhaps he did, Ill watch for it.

I felt there are two steps Registration and Activation, I'm not sure... The unit is running. I followed the steps outlined on this site for upgrading etc.

I've spent far to much time on this computer and this simple Q and I must get back to more important tasks. Will i entry the keys ? franking at this point in time i really don't know . All going well it will be done before the 30 days. perhaps on a new unit. i really have to go as my little wife needs some help. Thanks for the info.

Go to control panel -> system

At the bottom of the page it will tell you how many days until activation.
