I have a GENUINE version of Windows 7 Ultimate and my PC System confirms that it's genuine. However, when I tried to Activate on line the ID code was blocked by Microsoft. I tried activating by phone and they still insist that it is blocked unless I buy a new product code, which is disgusting as I've not used this disc before so it's not a case of trying to put it onto too many computers! I have 27 days left to activate or WHAT HAPPENS? Can anyone tell me: 1) Can I make it activate without paying Microsoft for either a new product code or paying them £46 for on line help for a day - you can't contact customer support without paying!!! 2) IF I don't activate within the remaining 27 days, what happens? Will Windows 7 stop working?
