    Shops r shut here 4 two more days & I need a copy (key) for Windows 7 home.

    I can't tell a gen. site from a fake one. Anyone suggest a MS genuine online reseller where i won't get burnt?

    Windows7 is 5 years old. Grab a Windows 8.1x license, you can find legit boxes for $50 on Ebay, and some vendors.

    Windows 7 has about 5 years to go until end of extended support.
    Windows 8.1 has about 8 years to go until end of extended support.

    A difference of about 3 years is pretty substantial but that's individual choice.

    Anyway, a quick search and I found this link:
