Windows 10 activation fail

Post by PSYCHoHoLiC » Mon Nov 13, 2017 10:14 am

So, all of the sudden i have the "activate windows" watermark on my desktop when it has been activated for quite a while.

I go to re-activate windows and it tells me to install windows 10 pro because that's the key tied to this PC.. lol

I am running pro.. awesome.

Stupid. I re-installed WIN 10 recently and it took a bit before I found that "recently changed hardware selection" but it's better than having to call in.
