    Did a clean install but completely neglected my missing/worn out product key now I'm getting the not genuine message... Really don't wanna do a clean install again... Heard of the Daz Loader but cannot seem to locate... Can anyone assist... Thanks...

    The number on the bottom of the product does not in any way related to activation, when you are talking to an OEM Windows 7. There is a number which allows the use of a DVD, which the manufacturer adds to the computer, if You buy it.Your product activation key is stored on the computer.If you installed Windows by using non-OEM installation package (used, for example, Retail Package), then of course it can not activate using Windows OEM activation data.

    Shucks can't seem to be able to download via qbitorrent... "Stalled"
    - Firewall off
    - Allowed qbittorrent access to network
    Sigh... Is there another safe download option?

    Only download the Windows loader from links shown here, or you'll end up with a snoot full of viruses. And don't forget to uncheck any downloaders on whatever download site it's hosted on.
