Install Upgrade - Product Key Has Been Blocked

I've reinstalled windows 7 ultimate many times due to the failure of my computer, but i'm getting this message whenever i enter the product key:"the product key you typed has been blocked from use by microsoft"i'm then given 4 different options to choose. I tried doing the activation over the phone but that just turned into a wasted call because it rejected the number i entered after following the on-screen instructions. So what can i do to activate my genuine copy of windows 7 ultimate?

Install Upgrade Key Blocked - Scammed?

Been running the release candidate for as long as i can and have been very happy with windows 7. So, when the rc expired i purchased windows 7 ultimate so i wouldn't be downgrading my install. However, after 4 days of using it, i'm not receiving a windows activation error, where it says that the product key i have typed in has been blocked. As i recall, the packaging was all intact, nothing missing nor any stickers torn (i'm very skeptical about this sort of thing, especially when it is $300 down the drain if something goes wrong).

So, i'm thinking i was scammed. Don't know how, but i've typed the product key in 3 times and checked that it's correct. My question then is whether there is a way to get my windows 7 ultimate without paying another $300.

Even the background photo went away for the first time ever. Today when i restored to a previous windows from the day before i had a message that i may not have a legal copy of windows 7, so i went through the process of validation. I entered the same product key i entered months ago and windows still blocked it. Where do i go from here?

Remove Styling On Printer Status Dialog

Just had a pretty hideous user experience which is a shame given how great windows 7 has been. I've just installed a printer (hp f4272). I didn't bother with the hp cd, just connected and let windows load the drivers it required. This worked fine.

The problem occurred within the. For want of a better word i'll call the printer options window. If i go to start -> devices and printers -> hp deskjet f2000 series rather than seeing the current status of print jobs i have an extra in between window that gives me printing and scanning options.

The first time i entered that window just below the address bar breadcrumb was a message asking if i'd like to update the information (sorry i can't remember the error as i was expecting windows to ask if i wanted the driver updated), to the link to the windows help associated with the message search in help for "automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware" and choose the top option. After clicking on this option it didn't as i expected update the driver but downloaded a hideous theme which as removed 1/2 of the options from the window and added an advert for hp. Image of what it looks like now:

I appreciate that this is an issue with hp not microsoft and could be quite a good feature if not abused by a vendor like this. What i'd like to do is uninstall this theme, the problem is i can't work out where to do it. I can't find any options in devices and printers, there isn't anything within add / remove programs either (yes i've turn on the option to see windows updates). Any ideas?

Uninstall Printer Software And Drivers / Program

How do i completely uninstall printer software and drivers if control panel uninstall a program utility results in error message? I have a brother mfc-9440cn multi-function printer/fax/scanner.

When i bought my new 64-bit windows pc, brother didn't have any windows 7 drivers, so i used the original (windows xp) software to get the device up and running. It did work perfectly - i could print but not scan. Plus i wasn't able to set it up as a shared printer so other family members on our home network could print to this device.

Now that brother has 64-bit windows 7 compatible software and drivers available, i'm having trouble installing it. When i try to install it, i get the message that "mfl-pro suite is already installed. Do you want to uninstall and then proceed with installation?" I click yes and then within the brother mfl-pro suite installshield wizard i get the message "an error occured during the installation. Please restart your pc, ensure all active applications are closed - then reinstall "mfl-pro suite. "

I have already tried the control panel uninstall a program utility and end up with exactly the same error message.

I have downloaded an uninstall utility from brother and end up with exactly the same error message.

I tried looking under regedit, hkey_local_machine > software > microsoft > windows > currentversion > uninstall for any stray registry entries relating to brother. There aren't any!

I need to find a way to completely remove the now non-functioning mfl-pro suite software and brother drivers so that i can install the new windows 7 compatible version. Can anyone help with this?

Samsung Ml-1430 Printer Driver Software Wont Install

Samsung ml-1430 printer driver win7x64 software won't install; can't find working driver-same with samsung dvd r/w. I quite vista (32 bit) when i had an infinity of problems getting hardware and software to work (goodbye to all that $$$), now i've tried win7x64 bit and i have worse problems!  I'm getting tired of this. I may junk it all and just install xp (again) after another ms or samsung failure to make sure hardware and sw works.

I can't figure out how to make the compatibility mode work and so much more won't work. I have a 3 ghz core 2 duo e8500, 4 gigs of memory, sata ii 500 gb hard drives, decent 8800 gt's video, so it's not a slow system. I just don't get it. If i could run rfactor on a mac i would get one just to avoid the last 3 years of headaches.

Remove Local Printer Port - Change Print Driver Associated With Port

How do i remove a local printer port, or change the print driver associated with the port. I added a local printer port machine-name-printer-name to address a printer that's attached to an xp machine on my home network. There was no driver for my printer (hp officejet v. 40 or the v series), so i tried installing it with the officejet d series. Well, the test page didn't work. I deleted the printer via control panel, but apparently the local port didn't delete. I can't add the printer again, i can't delete it, and i can't change the driver. So i'm stuck.

Dell Upgrade And Activation

I received from dell a full upgrade version of windows 7 (w7 64 bit) i installed it and worked fine for 30 days, then i was getting a pop up that said "windows version not valid please enter product key". The packaging was just a sleeve that had no product key, but had an what appears to be a dell id number of some sort and not enough digits and letters to qualify as a product key. Also on the sleeve there is message indicating that in order to authenticate w7 a coa might be needed to complete setup located on the bottom of my computer which i found. However this product is for windows vista and it too does not work to activate.

I also ran belarc and it said that the product key may be a windows key and not necessarily your own
After many phone calls and emails to both microsoft and dell, microsoft tells me to call dell. Dell says to reinstall again. Install from startup and use w7 disc to boot from. Dell indicates that when doing install from startup product key "should" be acknowledged from microsoft and activated automatically (bios?). But i am now in the same position i was before getting the same you need to activate w7 as the version i am running is not genuine or valid.

Is there anyway to "find" the product key on the disc? Or is there a setting that might need to be changed? If so how do i do that? I like w7, although i am prepared to go back to vista if need be.

Dell Mini 10 Upgrade Possible ?

Is it possible to upgrade to 7 for a dell mini 10? I've heard some reviews say it works great, others, not so great. I recently upgraded all of my computers to windows 7, and i love it i really, really, really wanted to do the same for my dell mini though. It only comes with 1gb of ram, and that's the limit. I just purchased it a few months ago, and it comes with xp. The windows 7 upgrade advisor/vista advisor will not work. I've tried and tried, but they just "scan" the computer for hours. I really wanted to upgrade it, but i want to know if it will work before heading out to buy another upgrade kit. It has a 240gb hard drive, 1gb ram, and the processor only seems to be 1. 33ghz

Dell 720 Printer

I recently installed windows 7. I cannot get my dell 720 printer to print. The computer recognizes it, but when i hit print it will not send it at all or an error 0x00000006 comes up. I called the dell service and they said my printer is not compatible. Is there any way around this or am i going to have to buy a new printer just for windows 7? I have tried the windows troubleshooting and a few drivers but any suggestions are welcome. I will repeat things that i have already done if you think they will work

Dell Printer Compatibility

I recently had to buy a new laptop which had windows 7 installed. I have a perfectly good dell personal all in one printer/scanner/fax/copier, but when i went to the dell site to upload the proper driver, i discovered that they don't provide a windows 7 driver for that model because it is considered "obsolete". Their customer service (of course!) Tried to sell me on buying a new printer to resolve the issue, but quite frankly, i don't use the printer all that often and don't want to invest a ton of money in a new printer.

I tried to install the vista 32 bit version of the printer driver (another forum suggested this as a workaround), but that does not seem to be working. However, i could be doing something wrong.
