    Windows 8.1


    Hi

    Originally I was running windows 7 that came with my laptop, then installed windows 8 Pro when it was a very special price at the beginning, then had the free upgrade to windows 8.1 Pro I have found that the latter update has generated another key found through `jelly bean`key finder.

    Question is how do I do a reinstall of 8.1 can I use this key? the reason I wish to reinstall is I think I may have a problem as some of my windows operations seem to not to be working as they should (not responding) is the message I get mostly, very frustrating.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is that from your email from Windows Store?
