    ''Your Windows 10 license will expire soon''


    Hello, I have a problem, every time i turn on my PC theres a message saying ''your windows 10 will expire soon'' for 2 days now. I got my PC made from a local Gaming PC building company and they installed the Windows for me, ive never had this problem with my laptop before. Any help please? I don't have the Windows code or anything

    :)

    Your Windows 10 License Will expire soon

    Double check to make sure your current edition of Windows 10 still shows as Windows 10 Home. Go to Settings > Update and security to verify.

    Do you still have the licence key for Windows 8 upgrade, if so you need to input this into Change product key.

    If not then use a key finder like ShowKeyPlus to find your key and input that into Change product key.

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Change the product key then enter the new product key then click Next to Activate

    If you are unable to activate Windows 10 after all the above and you are certain you have the correct edition installed, then please attempt phone activation:

    Activate Your Windows 10 License via Microsoft Chat Support

    Windows 7 came preinstalled on my computer, how do I find the product key?

    The product key is usually located on the COA sticker attached to the bottom of your laptop or in the battery compartment. In some rare cases it can also be found in the memory compartment. For tower systems, look at the top or the side of the system unit. It
    looks like the following:

    If the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker is damaged or letters or not legible, you will have to consider the following options:

    • Use a digital camera to capture a picture of the COA then enlarge it on your computer.

    I bought a retail box copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 8.1; where do I find the product key?

    For Windows 7, the product key can be located on a pamphlet in inside the Windows 7 box.

    Hi ErikP. Welcome to the TenForums @ErikP

    First things first, call the company and ask what is going on??

    Your license should not be expiring. What does this message suggest you do, just in case it is Malware. Please don't click on links in message. Can you post a screen shot? (Picture with phone)

    What does the activation screen under Settings - Updates & Security show? Also, in a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) run:

    slmgr /dlv

    and post the results.

    I just updated my Insider Preview [formerly known as Technical Preview] computers to Version 1703 Build 16521.0 and it shows an expiration date of 7/2/2018. The only other times I've seen an expiration date on Windows has been when delaying the activation, 30 days on a new install and 3 days on a reinstall [or 'dirty' install].

  12. I saw this when someone updated to windows 10 whilst they were at work. It was activated using the companies volume licence. For that we had to contact microsoft help (online chat) and they managed to remotely change the licence as it was a windows 7 upgrade. Your problem is slightly different as you bought the PC and it came with this copy.

    I think your first step is to contact the company you got it from as the OS is licenced to them instead of you. I would have expected them to have given you something when you bought the PC, not sure if you still get a licence key.

  14. You click on the "Change Product Key link on the activation tab and that will take you through the actvation process. It makes life easier if you have a hotmail, live, outlook email account as it links that product key with your account.
