I bought Windows 7 the month it was released and I am very happy with it. But each time I have not internet connection in my home (due to technical difficulties at the ISP) Windows immediately claims not to be a legal copy. If Internet comes back, Windows is fine again. And I am sure I verified Windows several times by now.
But to be honest it is a bit annoying and a bit scary and I am sure this is not the way it should be.
I am planning to buy me a laptop computer for travel so I will not have an internet connection for days maybe. Will Windows always complain? One day without Internet makes it an illegal copy and it will cease to work properly?
