Can i use the same product keys after reformatting?

Hey Guy,


I currently have windows vista installed and was planning to reformat to windows 7 when it comes out. I own 3D Mark vantage, if I was to install it now and use the product key, when I reformat my computer would I still be able to use the same product key?


Thanks everyone!

    ok great! so product keys just don't activate once or whatever. Thanks for your help.
  3. Yeah, the security system for a company is that it doesn't matter how much you install/reinstall your program as long your key is the only one and nobody else has the same one. Its to make sure you aren't sharing it or using it on multiple computers. Otherwise your fine.

    Great response, thankyou very much! :) So as long as that product key is only connecting to the internet from one source at anytime I will be fine?
