  1. "Activate Windows" error 0x8007007B


    Hi all. I got a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it was launched. It's been working as it should, but for the last couple months or so now I've had "Active Windows" on the lower right-hand side of my screen. When I open the activation page, this is what I see.

    I don't have an activation key, and I don't have access any longer to the email that I was using when I upgraded. I don't even remember having a key in the first place, since it was the free upgrade.

    Can anyone tell me what to do to make this go away?

    Thank you!

    :)

    Hi Arcane,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer. I understand the frustration when things don't work the way it should.

    If you get the activation error 0x8007007b” or “0x8007232b” when you try to activate your Windows 8, then probably you use a generic Windows 8 product key during installation and the activation wizard cannot
    find a valid KMS (Key Management Server) to activate your copy.

    I suggest you to follow the suggestions from
