  • Hello datvlad,

      If your Vista is Non-Genuine because of a invalid Product Key, you can go to http://microsoft.com/genuine and click the 'Validate Windows'button.  Once Vista fails Validation, you will be given the option to purchase a WGA Kit (i.e. a copy of Vista with a Valid Product Key) at a considerable discount.  The disk will be shipped to you and the Product Key will be emailed so you don't have to wait for shipping to restart using your Vista again.

      Another option is to go to the Microsoft Store http://store.microsoft.com. The MS Store sells Full and Upgrade copies of Vista (as well as other Microsoft Software and Hardware) You can buy Vista as a physical DVD that is shipped to you (the Product Key would be found inside the Vista package) or as a Digital Download (the Product Key would be found within the Order Informnation listed when you login to the account used to purchase the software)

      Lastly, you can buy a copy of Vista from a reputable local or online retailer of your choice. 

    Hope that helps,
    Darin MS
