yes, but I already said it was legit, and I didn't really care about wasting my day, (and microsofts money) calling their freephone activation line.

(it was completly leagal as well before anyone says anything)
50 times a month is a little overkill. I phone in like two or three times a year so they have good reason to believe that it may be a system failure that have to result in a complete restore.

Erm this year we've prob done it 8 or so times. IDK about you but I don't feel the need to buy a 250$ piece of software for EVERY SINGLE COMPUTER (we got 3) thats 750$ and if microsoft honsetly thinks they can get that then they crazy. Also you gotta remember. I bet most microsoft employees really don't care as long as they get their paycheck. So ya should be fine.
