What i've done thus far:
I did call windows support at one point and they gave me a couple more product ID's to try, which did not work. they even did a remote access (which didn't go over too well with me) to see that yes, I wasn't lying about the shit not working.
Today, i tried again for shits and giggles to see if the it'll take the upgrade product key again (Control Panel/ System and Security/ System) it takes the product key and attempts to verify it, only to have it fail and im given an error code of "0x80070005", with a description of "Access Denied".
My computer has only one profile, which is mine, which means its the Administrator profile. I went online and searched this error code, and all Microsoft's page does is recommend a program called "Total System Care" which is a bullshit thing that pretends to scan your system and finds problems. Only thing is, when you click "Fix" it prompts you with a "Buy now for $xx.xx"
I dont want to install this program since im thoroughly convinced there is something I can do without all this hassle of dealing with Microsoft's best in Customer Service or installing a bunch of shit, So im here to pick your guy's brains.
Also... If its needed, here are my system's spec:
Processor: AMD FX-6300
Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
Ram: 8GB sticks of DDR3 (four sticks total for 32GB)
Graphics: MSI N770 Twin Frozr (NVidia GTX-770 chipset)
