Microsoft seems to have removed this facility, pushing W7 upgrades to the new W8. Trying to find a legitimate source for upgrading 3 PCs from W7 Home Edition to W7 Pro. Any suggestions appreciated. thanks

Easiest just to buy new copies of Win7 for about £60.
Only problem will be a fresh install.

It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Ebay's the last place I'd ever buy software
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

It comes with a Dell computer that you have to collect! Assuming you can just not bother collecting it you should be aware that the software would not be licensed to use on any other computer.

It is a re-installation CD to reinstall the OS on a Dell computer which has the original OS loaded.

Hmm!

Bought and used at least 10 copies of Windows over the years without any problems.
Just needs a bit of common sense about who you buy from.
Someone with 1,000 plus good feedback "might" be OK.

I wouldn't buy Photoshop on Ebay - that would be lacking in common sense.

You probably don't buy cameras or lenses from Ebay either. .
