    Microsoft is working to restore the Windows 10 activation for affected users


    A few hours ago, we reported that a number of Windows 10 systems are being hit by a weird bug where the system loses its activation status. The bug in the question is not very widespread and it’s causing the systems to be listed as not activated.

    The number of users who are reporting the issue is growing every minute and several reports have surfaced in the past few hours. Your Windows 10 (Pro) license is still valid. It’s a known issue that is being experienced in several countries and Microsoft engineers are working on a solution.

    In a statement to media publications, Microsoft confirmed the reported issue and the company is actively working to restore the activations for Windows 10 Pro customers.

    “We’re working to restore product activations for the limited number of affected Windows 10 Pro customers,” Jeff Jones, a senior director at Microsoft, said in a statement.

    What’s wrong?


    Earlier today, reports surfaced claiming that Windows 10 is encountering an issue that causes activation problems on users machines. The users documented the incident on Twitter, YouTube, Reddit and other platforms explaining that all of a sudden, their Windows 10 installation is no longer activated.

    The reactivation by manually adding the keys doesn’t seem to work. The Troubleshooter fails to address the problem and in some rare cases, users are being asked to downgrade to Windows 10 Home from Pro.

    “We can’t activate Windows on this device because you don’t have a valid license or product key,” the message with error code 0xC004C003 reads.

    Only a limited number of systems are impacted by this glitch and there is no workaround at the moment. Getting in touch with Microsoft support team doesn’t seem to be work for users, according to reports.

    Microsoft is still investigating the issue and the company is trying to get things back to normal. For now, users are recommended to wait as the issue should be resolved in the next few hours.

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

    Comodo Software users Windows 10 *Important*

    Microsoft is working to restore the Windows 10 activation for affected users capture-jpg.jpg


    "Hi All,
    We stronly advise Comodo users not to update to latest MS update KB4022716, which is available for Windows 10 users till they have new fixed version of Comodo internet security products installed.

    Affected Products:
    - Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Antivirus / Comodo Firewall (Affected versions: v6246 and below)
    - Comodo Cloud Antivirus (Affected versions: v533 and below)
    - Internet Security Essentials (Affected versions: v81 and below)
    - Comodo Secure Shopping (Affected versions: v97 and below)

    Possible Problems:
    In case you have updated to MS update KB4022716 prior to updating to latest fixed version of Comodo products, following issues may appear:

    - Crashing browsers
    - May not be able to login to Windows

    Resolution:
    If you are able to login, you can uninstall Comodo and re-install latest fixed Comodo version. Else you need to go to Windows Safe Mode and uninstall Comodo product or re-store system to state before Comodo product was installed.

    In case you want to keep Comodo and pause Windows updates for some time, you may use following steps:
    Step - 1: Click on Start icon on Windows
    Step - 2: Next click on Settings menu item, it will open "Windows Settings" window
    Step - 3: Select "Update & Security" section from there and it will show "Windows Update" section
    Step - 4: Click on "Advanced Options" next, there is "Pause Updates" section allowing you to pause Windows updates for next several days

    You can find same steps with images here .

    Reason:
    There are unexpected changes in last MS update KB4022716, which are incompatible with Comodo products.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
