I dont believe you can us someone elses code on your pc. When the code is activated with Microsoft it is specific to that pc. When you try to use it again it tells you that the code is already in use and basicly gives you 6 months to activate with a good code.

There are ways around the WPA, if you do a search on google you may find what you are looking for. You can also try a seach on http://astalavista.box.sk/.

The databases microsoft uses to confirm & store those codes are purged after they are 90 days old. So it could be used.. but it takes 90 days for the registered infroamtion to be deleted so that it can be reused.
