    Hello Ernesto, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Windows 7 issues would be better asked at our sister site Seven Forums instead.

    If you currently have Windows 7 installed, activated, and running, then you could use the tutorial below to find your product key number. If not, then I hope you still have the paperwork that came with your Windows 7 upgrade package or you may be looking at having to buy a new copy.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
