  • Your Product ID line shows that you are using an MSDN product key.  Obviously, you are not the subscriber.

    Windows Product ID: 00359-232-4438207-86382 

    The 232 is the MSDN indicator.  The other computer mentioned in the error message is not your old one.  It is the subscriber and all the other people that an unscrupulous seller sold counterfeit Microsoft Windows to.  The entire box and its contents is a counterfeit product. 

    Many counterfeit copies are being sold on eBay and the Amazon Marketplace as well as various websites around the world.  The product key is not a genuine retail PK.  But it was a genuine MSDN and so activated and passed as genuine until it was blocked by Microsoft as an MSDN key in use by a nonsubscriber.  It takes a while for MS to detect and complete processing of abused keys and six months is about right. 

    Pursue a refund for an item not as described immediately.  Do not accept an offer of a replacement key from the seller.  It will be from the same source.  The seller is probably long gone and I realize that the time lapsed mitigates against success but try anyway.

    Buy a copy of Windows from a rock solid seller like the Microsoft Store or Amazon Corp (not an affiliate).

  • I recommend you use every online scanner you can to check the installed Windows and then decide. It is your comfort zone.  If you have any doubt at all reinstall now, otherwise it will bug you until you do at some less convenient time in the future.  If you feel OK then just change the key.

    Six months is about right for the block to show up.  MSDN keys permit ten simultaneous activations.  That's why the counterfeiters use them.  By being careful not to oversell too soon they avoid MS becoming aware of the keys overuse for long enough to do their sales and move on.  Then it takes MS a while to detect and flag the key.  MS has to take care of the subscriber's legitimate usages before blocking the key.  So it all takes time.  In the meantime the license passes genuine checks because until the key is blocked it is.

    Good luck.

  • I have ordered a copy from Amazon. I have given the details to ms but the site I bought from is still online and selling. When I receive my new copy would you recommend a clean install or just change the cd key? By the way the site seems so genuine it says that it is only for those with a genuine copy of windows to give them a second copy license. I am surprised that it activated and classed as ok for over six months. I will put this down to experience. Thanks to all for the help.
