After you've done that you may proceed further by the instructions given on the page.
***I recommend you to download either VMWare Player or Virtual Box to test out the OS. Please do not ever install a OS which is for testing purposes over your main system!!
You may just buy Windows 8 as it is a great improvement over Windows 7. But the main problem with it is:
The Start menu is gone, it's been replaced by the Start screen.
Everytime you start up Windows it's showing the Modern UI.
And so on.

The improvements most likely are:
The speed of turning on, shutting down, restarting.
The overall speed of the system.
The .iso integration.
The loading of objects in Windows like thumbnails.
Windows Defender is the anti-virus software already on the PC.
It's looking like MS Security Essentials of course now.

If you need any additional info then just ask!

From your question it is understood that, you have Windows 7 Ultimate operating system that may be installed in the computer or you may be thinking for installing it. So if you have a disc handy for the operating system then, find the product key on it mentioned as in alpha numeric codes.

How to change from window7 starter to ultimate without formating my system

Each computer you purchase comes with a Home Edition Windows 7 product, unless otherwise stated in the computer's details. To upgrade your edition, you must purchase a new license key, such as an Enterprise license key. You no longer need to install an upgrade to promote your computer. Instead, Windows 7 has a "Windows Anytime Upgrade" utility that allows you to enter a new license and promote your computer's operating system.

Click the Windows "Start" button. Type "windows anytime upgrade" in the search text box. Press "Enter." This command starts the upgrade wizard for Windows 7. Click the "Windows Anytime Upgrade" option, and select "Enter an Upgrade Key" in the options section. This activates a text box where you type your new license key. Type the Enterprise key in the license text box labeled "Upgrade Key." Click "Next." Windows verifies your license key is valid and tells you that you must wait several minutes to activate your new product license. Click "Reboot" after your new product activates. When you reboot, notice the new product edition "Enterprise" is shown in the Windows splash screen.

Please describe your how ca i remove microsoft ask genuine licensing software in my windows 7

Actually guys, in using windows 7 you can select either ways of updating your operating but in your case i think you have chosen automatic updates that's why microsoft checks your key if it genuine or not that's the reason why it asks for a genuine license key. In removing it you must have a valid genuine license from microsoft or reformat your PC in order to remove that problem

I need key to activate my windows

You should purchase a genuine license key from Microsoft in order to activate your windows. I would advice that you just don't ask for it on the internet for free because it would mean software piracy that is punishable by law.

Microsoft logs all IP addresses that uses cracked microsoft licenses and would definitely detect you if you will use unlicensed keys. Please save yourself from trouble and purchase a genuine key for your own use.
