I don't know anything about the site you mention, but every legal copy of Windows requires a valid product key, and I don't know of any way to get a valid product key except by purchasing it in one form or another.

The only exception I'm aware of is that Microsoft sometimes gives away limited quantities of promotional copies of its OS with valid license keys at some of it's events - for example OS announcement events.

Any non-Microsoft company claiming to give out free Windows product keys is virtually certain to be bogus.

thats what ive been trying to figure out. according to their site, you can download windows for free buy you have to pay to purchase the product key. so should i give it a try or is it a scam?

Digital River is a great site but Windows 7 from them is not free. They sell to college students for about $30. I got my MS Office 2010 from them for $99 with a disc.

They apparently provided the download for M.S. Windows 7 Student Discount editions before Jan 2010.

Those sites are simply ISO downloads for people who bought keys legit online from Microsoft and needed a different download link for there copy of Windows. Those sites give a copy of the operating system but not a key to run the system past the 30 free evaluation days. You can go to the Microsoft online store to purchase a legal key.

Here is the link the the Microsoft Store's Windows 7 Page

Also, the 30 dollar deal for college students ended a while ago, you can purchase an Upgrade version of Windows 7 Professional edition for around $60 now.
