OK to further clarify my issue and to answer Gentlemen Darrel:

My remark "free-ware" was only intended to add a bit of hummer to the 
posting; As I honestly do not believe Jaws' latest version would be 
free-ware.  I have not purchased any previous Jaws software; And therefore 
have no such authorization key previously installed on this machine.  Too 
this is a brand new computer bought only last week and in fact has not ever 
had any Jaws installed on it.  Only this single download from the H J web 
site.  So what of that?
Help?  Why no key needed?
