    Windows 10 Activation Error 0xC004C003


    I arrived to work the morning of Nov 14, 2018 and my Windows 10 computer had done an automatic update. (I could tell because my applications had been closed and a few, like Chrome, had been restarted.)


    There was a message in the corner of my screen saying "Activate Windows Go to Settings to activate Windows." When I went to Settings and tried to reactivate Windows it gave me error code 0xC004C003.


    I did a web search and came up with this article that advised me to just ignore the problem until Microsoft fixed it.

    https://www.pcworld.com/article/3319697/windows/windows-10-activation-problems-november-2018.html


    So I've been ignoring the problem, but it's been three weeks. I still get the same error. Should I continue to wait for a fix? Or is there something that I should do to fix this?


    I work at a small company. We don't have an IT department. It's up to me to fix this.


    I didn't install or change anything about my computer hardware or operating system before this happened. It shouldn't have anything to do with a legitimate activation problem. I've been using this computer since August 2017.


    Does anyone have advice for me?

    :)
