This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Windows 10 professional download. From quite a trusted source also. Hope this helps someone!

Windows 10 home available also for £29.99

Windows 10 has matured into a fantastic modern operating system and there’s never been a better time to move up from Windows 7 or 8 to the latest OS.
Windows 10 Professional includes features of Windows 10 Home, plus important business functionality for encryption, remote log-in, creating virtual machines, and more. Get fast start-ups, a familiar yet expanded Start menu, and great new ways to get stuff done, plus innovative features like an all-new browser built for online action and Cortana, the more personal digital assistant.

What Windows 10 Professional enables you to quickly connect to another ‘domain’, whether this is your business or school to use network files, servers, printers, and more. Ideal for taking your work on the road when you still need access to the office network. Professional also gets additional security with BitLocker to help protect your data with encryption and security management. Best of all, create and host virtual machines using Hyper-V, which is ideal for testing new software or, if you’re a developer, how your software performs on a brand new fresh OS.
Windows 10 is designed to go with you seamlessly from one device to another. It’s fast and responsive. You even get free chat or phone support from real people. With Windows 10, it’s easier than ever to do great things.
Multi-task like a master with the ability to snap four things on the screen at once. Screen getting crowded? Create virtual desktops to get more space and work with just the items you want. Plus, all your notifications and key settings are collected on one easy-to-reach screen.
What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don’t worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it’s still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)
When you buy Windows 10 Professional, you’ll be presented with the latest version which offers you the very latest May 2020 update.
Windows 10 Professional includes a 1-PC retail license which means you can install on a single PC and, later, move to another PC where required.

Even if all working fine after several years, it doesn't mean it's genuine unfortunately.

Most probably you are using a volume license key issued to some big company. It’s not legal you use even key is genuine(y)

these are not legit. I work for a big system builder and we cannot use these as no coa sticker. Correct licences on a new build home costs currently £70 and Windows 10 Pro £100. but prob no risk using them on your home pcs
anuruddha09/09/2020 22:12

neither its being sold illegally and prob destined for a company and they printed extra licences off.
Please look elsewhere! You can get repurposed keys for upgrade and standalone on personal devices far cheaper. As for business, I suspect you couldn't be purchasing third party keys

The first link is for Windows 10 Home: that one’s £29.99. The other’s for Windows 10 Pro: that’s £39.99. They haven’t increased the price.

Don’t know why this is so cold: Computer Active’s a legitimate source that’s been around for decades. I used to have a game demo disc from their PC magazine in the late 90’s, and have also bought a couple of these licenses recently myself to upgrade a couple of older laptops from Vista. If you want to buy a legitimate copy from a trusted company, then this is a great deal.

It isn't windows first OS. First windows version is Windows 1.0. Before that just MS-DOS only. You need to boot the computer from 3.5" floppy disk drive to boot to DOS. You can use Lotus123 or similer DOS based software. Just keyboard only.

Yes may be it's true. But if you buy a OEM copy you can't transfer the license to another computer. License key registered to that PCs motherboard. But RETAIL license you can transferred to another PC once you deregister from old PC. That's why retail keys are expensive.

The problem is the company selling these is not CA, but an unknown third-party hiding behind Cleverbridge, who is handling the payment: cleverbridge.com
Not original, no matter how they try to sell it.

If it activates, it's genuine. End of story.

It will activate as long as key is valid because Microsoft has that key in their database. The key is genuine but it’s not legal to use apart from that company staff.
If you want a refund or bought in error contact Cleverbridge directly with a dead link. Confidence inspiring.

Yer - it's posts like that which make me smile. When you're not having the best start to the day and you get to read such a simplistic and naive post like that - you realise things aren't so bad.
I particularly liked the "End of story" bit - I've said my piece, there is nothing wrong with it at all and that is it, full stop.
