In order to know, how and what to do is needed to know, what was there before. Was it installed on your computer at the factory or you installed itself on your old computer. How was installed Windows 7 Ultimate and a bit more info is needed to give some advise. And the result is still doubtful. It is always the best, when doing a new and clean installation. And any Windows 7 activation is so simple, if You have some knowledge about it. But if you had before preinstalled Windows 7 Pro (You had new purchased PC with preinstalled Win 7 Pro) then the activation is also installed on the separate hard drive partition. Now You must only to re-install the same Windows and it will be automatically activated.

But I can't undestand, why You want to do that.

If You give a bit more info, it's better to give some recommendations.

Thanks Kalju...

But my problem is quiet different and dont even know where to start from. the reason being that i was given a pc @ where i worked. and this pc has windows home premium installed on it. i tried something out and upgraded to windows ultimate using an upgrade key. now am about return the pc and i want to downgrade back before returning it. i was think MS could have also provide a downgrade tool which allows us to enter a downgrade key just like how upgrade works.... and secondly, the windows product key @ the bottom has been wiped / faded out so i cant really read the product keys... i want to find out also if there is anyway i can the product keys on the pc??? THANKS

Ultimate is just some useless options, and Bitlocker.

He or she wouldn't see no difference, between premium or pro or even ultimate.

Daz may be good but this is a company computer, you don't want to use that sort of software on a company computer.

YES! Ambrocious, do you have any idea how i can get the windows product keys @ the bottom of my pc??? i can see some keys but not all; the rest are faded out...

If you are only concerned about the Win 7 Ultimate Product key, use Magical Jelly Bean Key finder.!!!

Bro its just to recover your windows 7 original key, and the software down it is to recover MS office product keys.

if you don't understand my words please use Google instead, cause i wouldn't say a million time that this trick is just to recover the original windows 7 key not for other products...
