The craze of Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 7 RC was so huge that more than 1 million people have already downloaded their copies from Microsoft’s official site. In order to protect any unauthorized use, Microsoft needs you to activate your copy compulsorily. If you don’t get it activated, it will get expired automatically on 1st June 2010. Much before that expiry date, i.e. from 1st March 2010, your computer will get shut down every two hours forcing you to your copy activated if you want to use it without any trouble.
Microsoft allows you a 30 days of time to activate your Windows 7 RC 2 online for free. Once you activate Windows 7, you can use it with all features till 1st March, 2010 and up to 1st June, 2010 with some partial features. Below I’m mentioning the steps to activate your Windows 7 copy online.
