So what's the difference between that site and say downloading windows 7 and cracking it? From what I heard it's easy to pirate 7 and would probably be just as risky as getting it from a torrent.

Doing it the right way allows you access to Windows Updates and such.

I got a question. How can I make a toolbar at the top of the screen? I used to do that in XP to keep a line of commonly used icons in but I can't seem to do it in Windows 7. I can creat one on the taskbar at the bottom but can't seem to move it off the taskbar.

Just unlock the taskbar and move it upwards or to the side. I dunno if win7 is the same though. Maybe theres an appearance section.

As for win7 downloading, its easy to crack and you can download updates no problem. Getting it from this site though is the cheapest way for you to own an OFFICIAL one and feel good about yourself.

I actually liked to have a seperate bar at the top but the way the bar works now I might just move it lock stock and barrel.

Just an update on the purchase of the www.your360connection.com

I updated my Windows yesterday, and I booted up my computer today, and it said my Windows 7 is not genuine. Anyone else who purchased from that website get the same thing? Kinda sucks.

Oh no, seriously? I haven't had any problems with mine. Did you try reentering your serial number?

Where can I re-enter the serial?

Desktop is black, and Windows wants me to download and install more verification stuff. Saying I may be a victim of counterfeit software.

Let me knows!

I'd email the site. They'll most likely hand you a new one.

The 360 connection one? They've been down for months.

Unless you mean Microsoft. I was thinking of just going through with being a victim of counterfeit software.

Thats a real shame. You should probably by hax it and make it work. Its pretty easy to do. I mean you paid for it. It IS an original copy. Just from a different country.
