I had to reinstall my operating system due to a virus. In the process Musicmatch would not work so I reinstalled it. Now, even through I can find my music scattered different places, it will not play because of license problems. It seems Musicmatch thinks I'm trying to play it on a different computer. Any fixes?

Installing a new Operating System would cost you money to purchase a genuine copy of Windows 7.
