Windows 7 is one of the best operating systems for your computer and my personal favourite from the Windows family. In order to take advantage of its full potentials you have to activate your copy within 30 days.
If you need to activate Windows online, you must have a Windows 7 Activation key to authenticate your copy in order to block Software updates and Falsification.
Where To Find A Product Key?
The simplest way to find a Windows 7 Product keyis to look inside the Product’s package. You may, also, find it on the sticker on your computer or in a confirmation email, if you had purchased and downloaded Windows 7 online. If you are not able to locate your Product key you have to buy a new one and proceed with the activation.
How To Activate Windows 7
Windows 7 has an automatically setup activation when you install it. If, for some reason, you cannot activate it you might need to do it manually. This happens when you upgrade your computer or you can’t establish an online connection. There are three ways to activate Windows 7 and the steps are quite simple. You can do it with an Internet connection, your telephone or your modem.
Note: Some of you might confuse Activation with Registration. Just to be clear Activation is mandatory while Registration is not. With Registration you enter information such as your email address to sign up for Product support, tools and useful tips.
