    Activate windows watermark after update


    Hi everyone! So I have a genuine copy of windows (originally 7) upgraded to 10. Today I had an update (my windows is set to update regularly)

    and out of nowhere, I got an "activate windows" watermark. I tried to re-activate using my number but it says it "didn't work".

    any suggestions? should I just contact support?

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Activate Windows Watermark

    Hi Duncan,

    The Windows activation watermark is usually appearing if the activation servers detect that a device is not activated. For further help with activating your copy of Windows 10, visit this
    link. If the same issue persists after performing the troubleshooting suggestions on the link, follow these steps:

    • Using Cortana, type Notepad and then click on Notepad (Desktop app).
    • Type the following commands in Notepad:
      • @echo off

        taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe

        explorer.exe

        exit
        Activate windows watermark after update c725ce4e-b96c-420a-b767-3ff38944c7c2?upload=true.png

    • Save the file and name it as Activation.bat.

    • Change the Save as type to All files.

    • Locate the file, right-click on it and then choose Run as Administrator.

    • After running the file, restart your computer and then check if the same issue persists.

    Let us know if further assistance is needed.
