Hello group, I am currently running Win7Ultimate (RC) on my laptop. I am aware that on 3/01/2020 the OS will begin shutting down. My question is should i custom install a copy of Win7Ultimate or Professional from a purchased DVD or can I request and pay for a valid "KEY" of the RC that i am running. I purchased Win7 Professional already when it was being offered at the discount price. I have that installed on my desktop at the present time. What are the recommendations for the laptop? Thanks for all of your help group. I also want to wish all of you a Merry Christams and Happy New Year...I've taken the opportunity to be politically incorrect. I do hope that i have not offended any of the members. Cheers and beers to all!
