Any one know of a place I could find them at? Also I may have a old laptop disk some where so could I just use the laptops repaire disk or what? Btw the file I want is for windows 7 premium 64bit (x64).

Microsoft won't exsept OEM keys through their website unlike they did for digital river before they took the ISO's down from there. Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
