I've contacted Microsoft many times to get a new drive installation activated because a drive that I had been using for more a few months was blocked from working. The software was purchased from Amazon prior to release of 8 in October of 2012.
As a result of software stopping disk from working both drives with windows 8 on one drive with windows 7 professional along with files were now unaccessable. I needed to now to reinstall on new drives losing past information but now the products I had paid for and registered with Microsoft site (record of file should be on file). Much time lost. Monopoly business practices practiced.
Had problems previously with a completely different version of windows 7 professional. I think Bill Gates should have to complainees but then his idea of customer concerns would never get past entry person.
I guess after you are rich your product can fail and you Bill are not bothered. Too bad competion no longer exists.
Monetary Loss: $200.
