Most of you already know what Windows 7 is. It’s the much talked about Operating System that Microsoft came up with after Windows Vista failed to deliver and live up to the expectations of its customers. So, if you want to install it on your PC, you will come across a stage where you will need to activate it. If you don’t activate it, then you won’t get to use all the features that this OS has to offer. How do you do that? Let’s find out.
Firstly, one has to understand why activation is important. When you activate this, your piece of OS will be identified as a genuine product. You will be able to avail all the updates that Microsoft comes up with. You may either do this yourself, or you may go to a computer store and have them do it for you. You will need a product key at first. You will get this from the package itself. If you bought it online, it will be there in the email.
You can also go about the activation process online. Go to your computer Properties and click on the Activate Windows now button. Here also you will be required to provide the product key. After this, you will see the option, Activate Windows Online now. Click here. The next steps will be taken care of automatically.
Like anything else, there is obviously a third way. The Windows 7 loader software is one which allows you to activate your copy of Windows 7, and certify it as a genuine Microsoft product. Most importantly, you won’t need a product key if you are using the 7 loader. The software is encrypted, and all you need to do is install it on your PC. The rest of the stuff will be taken care of by it, and your OS will be activated.
