    I bought a Toshiba Satellite C655 6 years ago. Recently, I did a system recovery of the computer. It installed the windows 7 and many try out software. I did not like these 'extra' software. So I downloaded an windows 7 home premium from an window help site,
    and installed on my computer. I put my product key of Toshiba in. But after the installation, a message came out "Window is not genuine", I tried to put my product key from my Toshiba sticker again, but it did not work. Is there a way to 'activate' the 'clean' version of the windows 7? Or, I have to go back to the 'bloated' original window 7 version?

    Thanks for help.

    the os you downloaded should be win7.1 OEM and retail versions are not the same so your key will only work on your original os. you can uninstall the bloat in program and features.These should be in the list there.
