  1. De-activation of Windows 10


    I am currently on hold, awaiting the fourth person from Microsoft customer support to fix this problem (on the phone for over 4 hours now)...


    After upgrading my PC with a new motherboard, my Windows 10 Professional de-activated.

    It was fully activated and working fine yesterday.


    The troubleshooter could not fix the problem. The last registration key I had was for Windows 7 Professional (and I have no idea where that is now) - with the "free" update to Win 10, who cares about the old OS??

    This is absolutely appalling, on both fronts:


    1. My operating system should not have deactivated. Period. I bought the OS separately - not in a pre-built system. This deactivation feels unethical.


    2. 4 Hours on the phone, being bounced from person-to-person, with hours of hold time, without resolving my issues, is TERRIBLE customer service. The last representative told me that I would not be on hold... that she would connect me directly. 2 hours later... still on hold.


    Microsoft, please fix my product activation (and stop doing this!!)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    this search might help you https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sou...o+to+get+it+activated+windows+10+blocked+keys

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      De-activation of Windows 10 [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
