My wife recently did a Microsoft Usability study and received Windows 7 Home Premium as her gratuity. I finally sat down last night and backed up all her data, settings, and other misc. items. I usually don’t like to attempt to upgrade an operating system, so I wiped it clean and installed a fresh. I got to the point of entering the product key and received nice message that the product key was invalid. I wiped my eyes, glanced at the product key in the box again and verified that it was correct. It still wasn’t working. I thought to myself, this is directly from Microsoft how could this be bad. I was pleasantly surprised when I called Microsoft support and received very prompt support. They got me a new product key and I was on my way. I have entered a lot of product keys in my time and this is the first product key that I have ever had a problem with. I guess I have been lucky.
