  1. Windows 10 won't activate on my PC


    I bought my PC with Windows 10 included roughly a year ago and had no problems until a couple weeks ago. I believe my PC/Windows 10 got automatically updated at some point and then I started having problems. It was an automatic repair that I could not troubleshoot. I tried to uninstall recent updates, but that didn't help. Long story short, I had to factory reset my PC to get rid of this error. Now, my PC is working fine, but my Windows 10 won't activate and my product key doesn't work I do have a product ID. I see error code: 0x80004005. The troubleshoot option doesn't work. Is there something I can do to fix this issue?

    :)

    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

    Windows 10 won´t start any program as Administrator

    Hello. I´m having this issue since installed one of the latest Windows 10 system updates.

    When I try to open any program that requires Administrator confirmation (that screen with the Yes/No question), this dialog won´t appear anymore. The screen background stays darkened and nothing happens.

    1. Using Windows 10 Home (x64)
    2. My microsoft user account is properly checked
    3. I´m the administrator of the PC
    4. Already tried do create another administrator user account - same problem, no success
    5. Cannot start any program/service that requires administrator authorization (not even regedit)
    Please help!
