  2. Windows 10 retail license key

    I've been looking into possibly getting Windows 10. I found retail license keys being sold on eBay for extremely cheap (under $15). It
    seems like there would have to be some issue with these. However, I'm not sure what the problem could be. I've been doing some research. If I understand correctly, if it's retail then it cannot be OEM. Also, if it's retail, I understand it cannot be
    a volume license key. From what I understand, it cannot be MSDN, either. If it were simply pirated, then I don't see how it could be activated as they claim it can be. What am I missing? FWIW, it comes from Europe, but claims to be valid worldwide.

    (Not linking to the eBay sale as I don't want to "promote" it if there is an issue with it. But what can you suggest to me based on the little info available?)

    Edit: A possibility... could it potentially be resold to other parties and activated by them, but then if I reinstall (when enough activations have been done), I will be unable to reactivate again?

    Update Question

    How long has Windows 10 been running on this PC? Cumulative updates are issued monthly, the most recent being January 10, 2017 - KB3213986 (OS Build 14393.693). Four cumulative updates installed through Windows Update would be consistent with a system that was first booted around mid-October 2016. Two CUs and two Malicious software removal tools would place it about mid-December.

    Note that restoring a system image or reinstalling Windows, either by a reset or an in-place repair install will clear the update history.
     
  5. It would be sometime in December I believe, so this would make sense. Thank you for your answer.

    You're welcome.

    If you click the 'learn more' link in 'Settings > Update & security' it opens a web page listing the cumulative updates and their dates (note that some are only for mobiles, and a couple of the most recent were only for manual downloading). There's usually a malicious software removal tool issued at the same time as the CUs. The next update is expected to be issued this coming Tuesday.
