I bought my Windows 7 Key from an online shop. Is it Valid? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a key from an online shop called www.windows7key.net.

     

    They say the key has never been used or activated and is good to use. So I bought a key. I used my friends Win7 Professional DVD to do the installation and I have used the key I purchased.

    It seems to be activated and I can recieve downloads. However, I came across this site in regards to the PID. My PID is

     

    00371-221-5299764-86147. This is in the "220" region and so I am concerned.

    Does it matter if it is a "not-for-resale" key? I don't intend to sell it!

    Here is the report that using MGADIAG:

    Simple answer - you've been conned!

    more detailed answer:_

    Your Product Key is an MSDN not-for-resale one - which should never have been sold,

    You need to read teh BlockedKeys sticky, and teh Buying Safely Online sticky, in this forum's index page - they will tell you where you stand and what you can do about it.
