Not my problem Nigel, it's simply helpful info for the OP. It's up to him to decide if he wishes to purchase.

True enough; but having once bought one of these I found it was useless. I raised a case with eBay but the seller disappeared before they could get a refund. I wouldn't recommend that to anyone.

There are actually legitimate places to buy activation keys from, and their prices are very reasonable. Try www.softwaregeeks.co.uk

It wasn't a recommendation, simply information as previously stated. I'm assuming the OP is old enough, wise and astute enough to make his own decisions. As you've now provided another possibility he has 2 options to investigate.

You could have a look at this but it's a bit like asking for a brief guide to performing brain surgery. Being grown adults, it shouldn't be too difficult though
