Even though Windows Seven is a 7-year-old operating system, proportion of population who use it remains relatively high. Personally, I think Windows 7 interface is elegant and user-friendly. Its boot screen really makes me impressed. It is true that Windows 7 is still a good choice at the moment. Microsoft announced that they will continue supporting it till 2020. So you can keep your mind on using your computer for at least three years.
In today’s post, I will show you how to activate all versions of Windows 7 permanently without paying a dime. There are currently three ways to get a free license: first, by phone, which is the best way; second, by using KMS client setup keys, which is easiest; and third, by using activator tool. Honestly, I do not recommend the third way because Windows 7 Activator tool is often suspected of hacking tools by antivirus programs. If you don’t feel safe to use it, please try the first method. The following are the detailed instructions for activating Windows 7.

Method 2: KMS client setup keys
This one is not recommended anymore due to the new update of Microsoft.
Strengths of this method are 100 percent success rate and ease in implementation. However, it supports Windows 7 Pro / Enterprise only. That is why I have encouraged people to install Professional edition instead of the others. Please watch the video below for more details.
