    I bought an OEM windows and it was a one time install. I had to reenstall windows a while back and the key didn't work. Bought a key off the net and it worked for about 6 months then I got the dreaded Activation windows popping up..
    I have been living with it ever since .

    What should I do, and what version of windows or another key or the New windows 10, and how can I install an update version if my copy is not activated?

    thoughts?

    If you are dedicated to keeping Windows 7 then your option would be to purchase a new legal copy. PM gavinstubbs09 if you want to get a great deal on a new copy. You can give Windows 10 a shot as well as I do not believe it requires activated copies of Windows to upgrade from.

    I like it so far... If you need Windows though I think Gavin will be able to hook you up.

    As far as Windows goes, I don't have a problem with Win 7 since I only use it for 2 or 3 programs I need, I do everything else on the Mac side.

    You can private message him on here. I am sure he will give you a good price on it...
