The Windoof 7 EULA:-

"By using the software, you accept these terms. If you do not accept
them, do not use the software. Instead, contact the manufacturer or
installer to determine its return policy. You must comply with that
policy, which might limit your rights or require you to return the
entire system on which the software is installed."
