Hi, can you help an old gimmer? I purchased a copy of Win 7 on Ebay back in July. I was taken to hospital on the day that I received it. So I was not able to install it until last week. The activation failed and said the code was not genuine, (although it is on the box); the buyer is no longer on Ebay and I have no way of contacting him/her. So is there any work around, or do I have to bite the bullet and buy another version???? Anticipating your replies, LFU2

The product key should be on the Windows cover, inside the plastic box.
