    Well, it looks as though I may have found my "knights in shining armor"! lol As of last week, the daily
    "press" appeared each day announcing that we were evil by trying to save a few bucks and purchasing
    Windows 7 Ultimate from a merchandiser on Ebay:( Shame, shame on us!

    Yes, I have gone through all the paces and the PRODUCT KEY is "invalid" so THEY say:mad:..... $125.00 down the
    tubes says Microsoft! I don't think so! I tried to do it "their way" and complete their forms and got to question FOUR and when I entered Ebay, for some reason, I was unable to complete it to their satisfaction!?

    I am not too swift when it comes to downloading, drivers, saving, etc., but in studying your site,
    it looks as though you really have helped many people:) My husband bought this software in good faith and we do not appreciate these type of practices.

    I thank you for your assistance**:worthy:
    Best regards,

    Good morning....thank you for your reply. I appreciate you reminding me about eBay's Buyer Protection. I wasn't even thinking about it! And the "Windows 7 2011" was just a title
    to let people know I was speaking of 2011 versus 2008 or 2009, etc.

    Enjoy your Memorial Day!:)

    I received the Windows not Genuine warning today an windows went into notification mode, black screen and all I tried the solution listed here and manually it did not work. I gave up on that and tried the OPA tool which I had used to originally install the certificate and check activation, it worked. Here is the funny thing though I use no loaders or activators I have an Inspiron 1720 with a modded bios using the Dell Ultimate Key the system has been working for over a year now then all of a sudden it becomes not genuine. It is back and running again and validated just fine after using the OPA tool.
