My Computer had a virus, I have used 3 out of 5 Windows Vista Business License Key's, but I want to reuse the key number with out going to Key number 4.  Is there a way of doing this or do I just use another license, which would be silly since it would be going onto the same computer, thanks

If it is not an OEM license, Microsoft is usually very accomodating about re-using a license on the same computer to re-install. Reinstall, and then when trying to activate with the same key, call them, and explain. As you explain it here: Straight re-install on the same box because of problems and then we assume not OEM, there should be no issue. ... Thinkpads_User
