Need my product key

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Was told, by microsoft, that in order to finally get rid of this red shield sitting in my windows update area, that I need to provide them with my product key? I have no clue how to even find this, please help, as soon as you possibly can. We bought this desk top back in 2011, and am clueless here. Thank you.

There should be a Windows COA sticker on the desktop.

 

The number you will need is 5 sets of 5 digits.

Google-search for "download SPECCY free".

 

Download, install, and run the "free" version of SPECCY.

It will show the 25-character product-key, and _lots_ of other detailed information about the hardware inside your computer.
