    Windows needs activation after reset


    it honestly started when i was trying to fix what in all honesty should have been a fairly simple problem. though in trying to find the correct solution for this case windows unraveled into a slew of sequential problems (that showed me that i know frick all about IT and people who do sure are fine folk.) that eventually came down to having to completely reinstall windows. so i used the reset windows option (which finally worked at the point windows couldnt boot and not any time before) and


    long story short i had to reset windows cause i have learned its practically made of bubblegum and its saying that it is no longer valid. simply curious if its saying i need to buy a new product key because it broke itself... ultimately i can live with a little watermark in the corner its not really that obtrusive i do most of my work on my other screen anyway but i am curious if this is the case.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.
