Windows 7 Professional legitamate copy? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just bought a retail version of Windows 7 Professional, but after being burned a couple of times, I don't trust any copy.  Is this copy a good one?  It has passed all the Microsoft validation checks I can find.

    The product ID -221- Indicates a not for resale MSDN account. If you are not the account holder and you purchased this in a retail box, the box and it's contents are counterfeit. Demand an immediate refund from the seller

    You will have to purchase a legitimate windows from a legitimate retailer or revert to the windows your computer came with.

  • It passed the validation tests only because Microsoft has not yet identified it as an abused key in use by someone other than the subscriber.  MS will block it in a few weeks.  It is a genuine key but it is not a retail key.  You will continue to get burned if you purchase on price.  Unfortunately there are no legitimate bargains for Windows 7.  eBay, the Amazon marketplace, and most discount websites are full of counterfeits manufactured in China and using MSDN/TechNet product keys.  Purchase from the Microsoft Store, Amazon Corp., or other highly regarded retailer, but stay away from heavy discounters regardless of their claims.
