Windows 7 and 10

can I use my windows 10 original product key to activate windows 7

I do not win 10 but I have original instalacione with the product key and I want to install win 7

No, Windows 7 uses its own unique product key. A Windows 10 product key will not activate Windows 7.

You can buy a license of Windows 7.

You can find software OEM System Builder of dozens of online merchants. The current price for OEM Windows 7 Professional Newegg, for example, is $ 140. When I checked a few minutes ago, Amazon offered packages OEM Windows 7 Professional from several vendors at prices ranging from $ 101 to $ 150. When I checked earlier, a package specifically designed for reconditioned PCs cost only $ 50 for a 64-bit copy.

There is no technical limitation to prevent you from using OEM software on your computer, although this software only works for a clean install, not an upgrade. In the past, Microsoft has been remarkably inconsistent in his advice to clients on the question of whether this practice is allowed. (See "is allowed to use Windows OEM on your own PC? Don't ask Microsoft. »)

  • How to get an icon on the Desktop Web. I have windows 7 and 8 on different computers.

    I asked this question repeatedly in stores and friends and tells me that it is possible by clicking on the web address, however, it would seem that Firefox does not happen because I was only able to do so far. I used to be able to do it on Xp but now find it impossible. I use this facility to allow me to access a web page immediately instead of having to go through the search or a bookmark. I'm having the same problem with windows 8 on a different machine.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    There are several way to do.

    • 1 hold down the left mouse on the icon in the address bar, and then move the icon on your desktop and let go.

  • 10 Windows mail and troubled calendar


    I am currently configuring my iCloud account to work with the default Windows 10 calendar, Mail, people, etc. applications, however, when I created the account, it says the following:

    Calendar - "can't get calendars.

    Mail - "can't get mail.

    People - "cannot get contacts."

    He also mentioned the generic "don't get___" where the account name must be 'system error '.

    I got the account set in place with the applications before and it worked perfectly with all three of these applications, but that was before I implemented authentication two factor, so I think that two factors is the problem.

    Everyone knows about the above? Have you been able to solve it? Contact Apple Support?

    Thank you


    Hi Pfinnegan,

    Please use the Apple Support communities to post your question.

By entering the code, make sure you approve of the new device. For example, if you have an iPhone and you sign your account for the first time on a newly purchased Mac, you will be prompted to enter your password and verification code that appears automatically on your iPhone.

    What are the requirements of system for two-factor authentication?
    For the best experience, you should ensure that you meet the system requirements below on all devices you use with your Apple ID:
    iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with iOS 9

    Apple Watch with watch OS 2

  • right on the website via Firefox - window opens and tells me that I'm using an older version of Firefox & must dwnlod naked one. Legitimate or not? Ono

    I was just on a genealogy site accessed via Firefox when a pop-up window appeared and informed me that I was using an out of the version of Firefox and I should click here to download a new one.

    What is a real request or a scam any?

    If you get a pop-up message asking to put plugins or Firefox updated or anti-malware analysis then this message probably is a scam and you should never respond to such reporting to avoid being infected by malware.

    • Don't update Firefox via "> about" or by downloading and installing Firefox from Mozilla and server never using a popup or a link on a web page.
    • Plugins should be updated only through the plugin itself, or by visiting the home page of the plugin.

    Note that the current version of Firefox is Firefox 36.0.4, refer to help > topic
    You can find the full version of the current Firefox 36.0.4 version in all languages and for all systems operating here:

  • I'm running on Windows 7 and my close tabs are blackened?

    The tab at the top right of the page is blacked out. This is the tab for
    closing Firefox. When I click in the black box where the close button must be; It closes.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem.

    • Put yourself in the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance
    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode safe

    If you use a non-standard windows theme or other changes in appearance then trying to return those and use a standard theme (different).

  • Reset Windows Picture and FAX viewer as the default value for jpeg files after loading of Corel

    I put Windows Picture and FAX Viewer by default to open jpeg, tiff and other pictures, so it appeared as an option in the drop-down list to view attachments that have been downloaded.

  • When you use firefox, a new firefox window opened and blocked to continue using firefox unless I have a fine. I can't delete the page or even let him. Any help?

    The new window is "". It is said in very rough English that they recorded me have access to child pornography and in order to unlock my browser, I have to pay $300 through some point of payment. When I try to close the window, a pop-up asks you, "do you want to leave this page? IF you click Yes, it flashes and repeats the same pop-up over and over.

    The English used in the message indicates it is clearly a fraud... it seems that maybe a virus, even if I have an internet virus scanner.

    Any suggestions how to "selectively" delete this 'blocking' window without having to reset firefox entirely?

    Go ahead and force close Firefox by using the Task Manager.

    CTRL + Shift + Esc > process tab > select firefox.exe > 'End process' button

    Then open the currently active settings Firefox folder by using the search box of the start menu to open this short address:


    If you see more than one folder, click on in the most recent. If there is only a single folder, click on in this.

    Search for files beginning with sessionstore. Generally, you will find sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak. If Windows hides file extensions, you can view according to the method described in this article to support:

    Rename sessionstore.js to something like sessionstore_bad.js file, so that Firefox does not restore this last series of windows and tabs automatically.

    Leave this window open, and then restart Firefox.

    If you want to reopen some of the pages of the last session, you can use the tips in the following threads for 'mine' the sessionstore_bad.js file to extract the URL:
