Activating Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new computer with windows 7 preinstalled...i have had a popup asking me to activate it but didnot know where the code was. I have the code now but cannot find out where to go on the net to complete the activation.

    I have tried going to the sysr=tems on the control panel and right clicking the computer and looking in properties but the line saying how many days I have left to complete activation is not there. Does this mean I am too late? If not how do I do it? I'm a novice a t this it is my first computer!!!
