  1. Updated windows to Version 1809, now it says "Activate Windows"


    Hi,


    I updated my windows to version 1809, now about 50% of the time when I boot up my computer, an "Activate Windows" water appears at the bottom right of the screen (directly over the icons and time / date). When I restart it will go away. Other times while using the computer the watermark will suddenly appear. Any idea what happened? I've used this computer for 2 years now with Windows 10 Pro license, never had an issue.


    Thanks,

    Shah

    :)

  2. Windows updates...

    Oh. Your "Registry" must have gotten screwed up FLY3R. If for some reason you couldn't download your updates I suppose you could go to the update site, and run throught the steps 'till it fails activation. Then you could go up to "Tools > Manage Add ons > then disable "Windows Genuine Advatage Validation Tool." Of course you should only use this method if you are having problems updating your legitamate copy of Windows XP. Perhaps do to a corrupted piece of software? *Smile Updated windows to Version 1809, now it says "Activate Windows" :)

    Windows Update suddenly hangs?

    Windows Update is suddenly hanging for some reason... I went and downloaded and installed the first bunch of updates, restarted when asked, and now when I go back to windows update I just get the window with a white box forever. Reboot and it still does it. This happens to be on my main machine, running windows 7.

    I've also noticed when I reboot it says configuring windows update, step 3 of 3, 47%. Maybe it somehow skipped something and is screwed forever?
