Microsoft Windows 7 Product Activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

       I frequently reformat my desktop HDD and reinstall the operating-system, due to which I need to know what is the maximum number of times that a single copy of Windows 7 can be re-activated.

       Thanks.

    Why? It's almost always a bad thing to do.

     due to which I need to know what is the maximum number of times that a single copy of Windows 7 can be re-activated.

    Just as with all previous version of Windows, there is no maximum. You
    can do it as many times as you need to or want to.

  • There is no limit, you re-install and activate without limits.
