Resolve issues while activating Windows® 7
What are the tips to resolve the issues while activating Windows 7?
Windows 7 activation is the process of registering the operating system and making it legal. If the activation period expires then you will not be able to update your system with the recent updates from Microsoft. If you have not activated Windows 7 during the installation process, then you can do it manually as well. To activate Windows 7, open 'Windows Activation' and then click 'Click here to activate Windows now'. You might face certain problems while activating Windows 7 on your PC which hamper the smooth installation of the Operating System. If you cannot find the product key, then look for it on the installation disc in the Windows package. If you still cannot locate it, then you might have to buy a new package. You will not be able to activate Windows 7 without entering the product key.
