Here is the easiest way and it is certain to work:

Go through the following steps:

*Buy the license first.

*Download Key Update Tool, a utility provided by Microsoft to change the key of the Windows version installed.

*The download address is http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/3/7/83712767-395c-4327-8e87-38be7b0cf75f/KeyUpdateTool_enu.exe

*Double-click the utility will then check the system files.

*Enter the official key and click Next.

*Accept the license agreement and click Next.

*The key is legalized.

*Click Finish.

*Windows restarts.
