First 120 days of Windows 7 are free

Posted on Monday, August 24 2009 @ 07:25:46 CEST by


Microsoft confirmed that like Vista, Windows 7 can be used for up to 120 days without providing a product activation key. Normally you only get 30 days, but by using the slmgr-rearm command at the Windows 7 command prompt users can extend the deadline.
Although Microsoft generally touts a 30-day time limit for users to activate their copies of the company's operating system, a little-known command designed for corporate administrators can be used by anyone to "reset" the countdown up to three times.

Late yesterday, the Windows Secrets newsletter published step-by-step instructions on using a single-line command to add an additional 90 days to the stock 30-day grace period.
