Windows 7 was made available this week with massive discounts if customers pre order them, but they could soon run out.

Microsoft announced a programme which will offer £100 off the home user version and over £100 off the professional version.

"They are going fast," said a Microsoft spokesman. "We had a limited amount of copies and demand has been high and we are running out."
