    Windows 10 pro deactivating


    Ok so back in April of 2017 i got a refurbished office pc that had a windows 10 pro refurbish key i used it on that pc and worked fine, and in august of 2018 i built a gaming pc and i used the key on the new system and it worked totally fine and fully activated it till today 2/25/19 i was starting my pc like normal it said something about getting devices ready while booting into windows but everything seemed fine and normal so later in the day while playing a game i saw the activate windows pop up in the bottom right i go and check it and it says this Windows 10 pro deactivating 6d16dd60-a3ae-4333-a2a2-c24b727d2360?upload=true.png

    i used the troubleshooter a few time and it said this Windows 10 pro deactivating 4b94637b-6fb8-4f88-88da-4fe663aff639?upload=true.png

    so i need help few things to note:

    #1 i changed from hdd to a ssd in January copied the entire hdd to ssd

    #2 i added another hdd in the process for storage

    #3 i have tried reentering the same key with no luck

    no other major hardware changes besides those 2 and if it got deactivated cause of that to be honest that is stupid


    Edit: after a restart or power on the activate windows dose not appear for like a few hours

    :)

    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
