It seems i have to buy a new windows license as mine is not activated through my microsoft account (and the product key apparently 'doesnt include certain characters')

I really do not want to spend 100+ bucks for the few simple things to have it activated. Saw this site from a post on this site.

Just want to know your guys' opinions..

No.
A recent laptop of mine suffered from a bogus OS license.
Worked fine initially. Exactly 6 months later - Unactivated.

Would you say the same for the hardware in your system?
Licensed software is no different.
