License Check

Do I have a valid license?

 

 

Above, are images of Microsoft Windows license stickers. On these license stickers you will see the version of Microsoft Windows for which the license is valid, and a 25 digit product key. Note in the stickers above that the licenses are for Windows XP Home Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium, and Windows 7 Home Premium. The product keys are used to validate the installation of Microsoft windows and are generally only licensed for use on one PC. Because of this, we have blanked out the product keys on these images.

Where is my license sticker usually located?

Usually, the sticker is located on the side or back of the computer tower/case. It can also be located on a Microsoft Windows CD/DVD sleeve/case, an OEM branded recovery CD/DVD sleeve/case, or accompanying booklet that came with your computer.
