Is this a local account or a Microsoft account?

Is this a legitimate copy of WIndows?  Has it been activated?


Just FYI - we will not help with bypassing passwords on these forums.  It's against the forum rules.

Our advice will be directed towards helping you retrieve your password from Microsoft.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
