How do I activate Windows 7 by telephone?

1. Click Start, and in the Search box type: slui.exe 4
2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard
3. Select your Country.
4. Take the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person

Step four provides you with the Microsoft toll free number. Please note that there are nine sets of numbers, six numbers per set. You will read these to Microsoft who will provide you with nine replacement sets of numbers.
