    Windows is activated but i keep getting the "Activate Windows" watermark. 6805b9b7-d020-4da9-bf06-10646f364701?upload=true.png


    I have attached a PNG. As you can see, I have went to settings and it is telling me its activated. If that's true, why do I get the watermark EVERY time I boot with no internet connection? I use this laptop for 3D design and I look bad when the customer sees this. I will note that this was a windows 7 upgrade. (Came with Win 10 Home [key in bios?] and wiped it and put Win 7 ultimate on it and ran it for a 18 months and then upgraded to Win 10 Pro). Maybe that has something to do with this? Also, it kept trying to install Win 10 Home. I edited a file on the USB and manually selected Windows 10 Pro ( If I upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate. That would give me a Win 10 pro key, correct?)


    Any ideas on how to fix this? Running "Get Help" > "Troubleshoot Activation", will make it go away but I shouldn't have to do this EVERY Startup.

    :)

  2. Activate Windows Watermark

    Hi Duncan,

    The Windows activation watermark is usually appearing if the activation servers detect that a device is not activated. For further help with activating your copy of Windows 10, visit this
    link. If the same issue persists after performing the troubleshooting suggestions on the link, follow these steps:

    • Using Cortana, type Notepad and then click on Notepad (Desktop app).
    • Type the following commands in Notepad:
      • @echo off

        taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe

        explorer.exe

        exit
        Windows is activated but i keep getting the "Activate Windows" watermark. c725ce4e-b96c-420a-b767-3ff38944c7c2?upload=true.png

    • Save the file and name it as Activation.bat.

    • Change the Save as type to All files.

    • Locate the file, right-click on it and then choose Run as Administrator.

    • After running the file, restart your computer and then check if the same issue persists.

    Let us know if further assistance is needed.

    Windows activation . . .

    In the Windows activation status page is it still showing as activated, or do you have something like 3 days to do it in?

  4. Windows is activated but i keep getting the "Activate Windows" watermark.

    Activate Windows watermark will not go away.

    The "Activate Windows" watermark on the lower right of my screen will not go away. I have successfully activated windows. The issue is the persistence of the watermark. I have had multiple suggestions from people on this forum of things to modify in the
    registry, none of which have worked. I have installed all of the latest available Windows updates.

    Thanks,

    Dennis
