    Hello.


    I bought a PC from a store with Windows 10 Pro installed.

    It worked fine for 6 months. Today when I started it, it gave me a watermark message that Windows is not activated. I tried troubleshooting but that did not help. It asks me to contact the administrator, but I am the administrator of my PC(I am the sole user).


    What is more bizarre is that after I restarted the PC, I found the watermark missing. I was relieved, but my joy was short-lived because in Settings> Update & Security> Activation it still says that Windows is not activated with error code 0x80070002.


    I searched various forums with no success.

    No, I did not perform any significant hardware changes to my machine.


    Thanks in advance.


    Chaitanya

    Windows 10 Pro got deactivated for no apparent reason.

    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
