    Default Windows 7 activation

    Hello all, what is currently best way to activate a copy of Windows 7?

    I'm struggling to find one that works for a pc of mine still running 7, after a recent mistake where i accidentally let it install the latest updates.

    KMS tools, Microsoft toolkit and Windows loader all fail, even though they say they have been successful, i really don't want to have to do a re installation.

    Thanks in advance.

    For less than £5 you can buy an activation key off ebay, I got fed up with hunting down a new activation tool for Office every time the updated and screwed it so got one off ebay.

    KMSpico is the tool I always use. Never failed me. MS Toolkit went to shit for me.

    Yes mate i did, i've actually solved it now using latest Microsoft toolkit, it was as easy as clicking 'Rearm' then activate, and it worked.

    I was going to buy a key from Ebay as BB suggested, but couldn't find an activation key for my version of Windows, Enterprise.

    FYI for Office there is a new tool that downloads, converts and activates any version of Office called "OfficeRTool2018March13".

    I'll post it up in a new thread later.

    There are toolz to convert the license type. Once it’s a volume license kms will activate it.

    Im out but I’ve got a load of old win7 stuff on a drive at home.

    You need to remove update KB971033 & daz should then work. Daz for me has worked flawlessly on every 7 build i have used.
