    I purchsed a downloaded activation code from a verified e-bay seller.The code does not work giving the error code: IMG_0018.JPG
    I also wondered why their advert claimed Windows 7 Home premium is the "most veratile" version of windows 7 O.S.

    Don't know why that would be said. If you cannot activate or stay activated with their activation code then it looks like you've been had. Get your money back.

    Manythanks for your reply.
    The company just sent a new number that activated O.K.
    There is a very large difference in local pices for the code, $127 and on line e-bay $28.I have the disc already with a Dell lap-top installation.
