Mmm im not sure if this is genuine &/Or worth the gamble! im running on W7 (64 bit) Ultimate BUT its the BETA version & i am so happy with it i want to buy the FULL licence Key/Program! i have the beta version on my hard drive so when i do a fresh instal im prompted as norm by the program for the key where i can just input any genuine key so to save a HUGE amount of money ive found this & wanted to know is it worth taking the risk.??

You've been on this forum long enough now surely to know better than to ask such a naive question.

I'm very surprised that you need to ask this question. You can only get a genuine installation key from Microsoft, and you cannot convert a beta version of Windows7 to a full release version - nor would you want to.

You must buy the software like everyone else.

If you are offended by my comment I apologise. Before making it I was aware that you have posted a number of topics for discussion in the past and therefore were in a position to have known, from numerous other members, that these scams occur, not only on Ebay, but many other sites. Check it out!

will stop working eventually - sometime in March next year if it's the Release Candidate - so you'll need to buy the full version if you want to carry on using Windows 7.
