That's the one I tried and it worked, for Firefox, but there is a unanimous consensus of my Googled pages that IE9 does not have native (my term, not theirs) spell checking capability, and that my Vista does not support IE10.  There are various accessories or plug-ins that make spell checking available to IE9, included the highly recommended iespell, but I'm not willing to import anything that might be spying on me or otherwise commandeering my computer.


FWIW, I actually like this G 60 better than my Pavilion G7 just because the screen is smaller, making it more convenient to transport, so if it can support Windows7, I might like to use the Windows7 license from my now dead Pavilion, but one obstacle is, the 25 digit product key tag on the Pavilion is obliterated.  Since I of course activated that Windows7 through Microsoft and gave them the 25 digit key, is that number retrievable to me from Microsoft by furnishing appropriate identification?

You can't move an OEM installed Windows 7. You can move a retail version. 




From the link:


If it's a retail license - yes, you can move it to another computer as long as it's only installed on one computer at a time. The previous Windows 7 installation must be formatted/deleted. You might have to call Microsoft and explain what happened to complete the activation. Activating it on the second computer will automatically deactivate the license for the first computer. The key will work with both 32 and 64 bit, but only one can be installed at a time.

If it's an OEM license - no. OEM licenses are tied to the first computer they are installed on and can not be transferred to a different computer.
