I have a comp that me and my dad use. I like to play around and expirment with it, So I have to reinstall windows pretty often. I've done it about 6 or 7 times now, and activated it every time! I thought you can only activate it 3 times, but it keeps working. anyone know why?
:eek:

You can activate it on 1 computer
Your using the same computer so you can reinstall it till the computer breaks. One day Ill have to read about transfer rights.
