    Hi
    I have a game that comes with a product key that is used to activate it, I need to uninstall the game from my computer and re-install it at a later date. However the product key is only valid for 5 uses, I was wondering if it was possible to remove the game so that I can re-install it later without having to re-use my product key and lower my remaining uses. Is there any way to do this, any help will be most appreciated! :)

    P.S. I am running windows 7 (if thats relevant)

    Check with the vendor. If you uninstall the game, it is very likely it will leave licensing info intact.

    I think it means 5 uses at once, rather than 5 uses in total, but yes - do check with whoever published the game :)
