  1. Activate Windows - Go to Settings to Activate Windows


    In the last couple of days a watermark has appeared in the bottom right hand side of my screen saying "Activate Windows Go to Settings to Activate Windows. I have a Dell desktop computer that came pre-installed with Windows 10 Home. I can see from Settings that I still have Windows 10 Home with a valid Product ID. At the bottom of the the home page of Settings I can now see "Windows isn't activated. Activate Windows now" but when I click on this nothing happens. Can someone please assist?

    :)

    Windows activation . . .

    In the Windows activation status page is it still showing as activated, or do you have something like 3 days to do it in?

  3. Windows Vista Activation

    I have 4 sytems in my home running vista(1 ult.-3 prem).The ultimate & 1 premium took SP1
    wthout a hitch.1 premium required re-activation?,The other premium did not list SP1 in windows up-date,So i manually installed it without any re-activation required.
    Also have to add that SP1 has increased performance in every comp.The ultimate machine actually got a 1,100 point increase in 3d 06 without any other changes at all.

    Windows Activation?

    Windows will do this if it detects a significant (their word, questionable use) hardware change, and will ask you to reactivate.

    After a key has been activated X number of times, you will have to call to activate it.

    Couple of tips for the phone call: You can use your keypad, and when they're telling you keys, instead of saying "Repeat that" and "Continue" type 1 and 2. With these tips, that activation call will only last you about 4 and a half minutes.
