"Activate Window" message

Q: "Activate Window" message

I bought a used laptop with Window 10 already upgraded on it. Now I get a message saying "Activate Window - your window license expires in May 30th". The previous seller doesn't answer the phone. Should I buy window 10 or is there any way I can get product key from the laptop? Does it work if I use the recovery? The laptop is still under warranty.
Thank you for your suggestions.

Preferred Solution: "Activate Window" message

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

warranty with who
if under warranty . then its probably windows 8/8.1 originally on the PC and so should upgrade to Win10 for free
However, have a look for a label on the laptop and see if that says if its
windows 7
windows vista anywhere

in the search bar at the bottom of the screen
type
winver
and click on winver
post back the windows version from the box that appears

On Monday I picked up a virus, which I finally eliminated yesterday. I rebooted the computer and logged on and then this message appeared:

Windows Product Activation

A problem has prevented Windows from accurately checking the status of the license for this computer. To procced your copy od Windows must be activated with Microsoft. Do you want to activate Windows now?

I chose Yes and a window comes up that says "Activate Windows" and there are 2 picture markers, top left and top right corners and nothing else. Closing the window causes me to be logged out.

I can boot into Safe Mode.

I think that a file has been trashed (?). How do I fix this?

In advance, thank you for for assistance and guidance.

A:Blank "Activate Windows" Window

Hello

To find out if your copy of XP is already activated,
type into Start>Run
oobe/msoobe /a
OK

OR
Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools and clicking on "Activate Windows". It will say "Windows is already activated. Click OK to exit" on an already activated PC.

What happens with these?

For the past week or so, I am suddenly (in the middle of working on something) getting a blue screen that says "Activate Windows. Go to PC Settings to activate Windows." And there's a PC settings button to click. The only way out of that screen is to click there. So I do, and it briefly looks like I'm going to go to some sort of settings screen, but then it disappears and it takes me to my start screen. When I go back to my desktop, whatever I was working on is right where I left it. Happens several times a day.

Any ideas why this is happening and why it never actually takes me to PC Settings and what I can do to stop this?

I'm running 8.1 - I "upgraded" (I use that term loosely!) when it first became available back in October.

Check your BIOS for settings on that port you seated that pci card in.

Hi there,

I didn't really know how to google for this (although I did), so I didn't find anything proper and like to ask you: How do I remove the "labels" from drive types in "Computer" window? What I mean:
These labels above the different drives are really annoying, as I'm accustomed at one item after another and somehow one could change it to that view in every OS every since (XP, Vista), but now it doesn't seem to work? (I tried all the context menu items )

Any ideas? Thanks for your help in advance, much appreciated!

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hello all, first post. I am really stressing out here. I have run a legal copy of XP Pro SP3 for several years on my laptop, and everything has run smoothly until recently. Last night my battery ran down completely to the point of shutting off, which it has done in the past. But when I turned it on this morning, and I log on, a message pops up that says "You must Activate this copy of windows before logging on, would you like to activate now?"

If i click no, it logs off, if i click yes nothing happens. Now when i plugged in the ethernet from the router, and click yes, a windows activation thing pops up, but stalls at "checking for connectivity".

I can boot in safe mode.

Does anyone know what I can do?

Thanks!

Welcome to TSF

Either phone Microsoft and ask for assistance or format and reinstall again. Possible hiccup in the install as I see it too often. You cannot lose nothing as you are not even into the system yet.

I Purchased Win 7 Ultimate some months ago as a download. It activated properly, and has been very stable. I replaced my processor three days ago without incident - no messages about activation. Now I am getting the black screen and "Windows is not genuine" message. I tried entering the product code - no joy. So I called the number and tried phone activation - three times - at the end, it said "you cannot activate Windows today". There used to be a number to call to explain about hardware updates - but I cannot find it anywhere on their site. I tried system restore, and it didn't complete.

Any help anyone could provied would be greatly appreciated. I am not interested in paying for my copy of Windows again.

After purchasing another year of System Mechanic I was unable to re-activate. The previous version had expired a few months before downloading the newer version. The first attempt to re-activate with the new "activation key" triggered a window that requested that I purchase a discounted version. There was no provision to enter the new "re-activation key". I then tried uninstalling the old version, re-installed the newer version then proceeded to "re-activate". The same frustrating window appeared requesting that I purchase a new version. Attempts to contact iOLO has been ignored. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I bought a Windows 8.1 with Bing tablet (Trekstor Wintron 10.1) to use it in kiosk mode (run just one app for a specific demo use).

The problem is that the Windows 8.1 with Bing Version does not have this feature.

On Windows 8.1 RT and Pro, etc. it is easy to configure the feature.
See: Set up a PC as a kiosk using Windows 8.1's Assigned Access - TechRepublic

But under Windows 8.1 with Bing the "Set up an account for assigned access" button is not visible

Is there someone who knows a way how to convert the "Windows 8.1 with Bing" version to a regular "Windows 8.1 RT" Version? Maybe by changing some registry keys or whatever.
Or how to activate this "Assigned Access" feature without using the GUI?
Already tried to do it with the PowerShell but it seems that the "Set-AssignedAccess" function is not available..

Thank you in advance!

Kind Regards
Michael

A:Activate "Assigned Access" on Windows 8.1 with Bing

I don't know about using assigned access and using kiosk mode in practice(only what I've read) but if you cannot get it working does Windows 8.1 with Bing have Family Safety? With that you can restrict what programs are used and websites visited. This tutorial from Brink: "To Manage Family Safety App Restrictions Locally in Windows 8" should help you.

I have a watermark that says, "Activate Windows Go to Settings to activate Windows". I upgraded from windows 7 and then I replaced my cpu and mother board a month ago and now this message appears and I do not have a product key to activate it with.

A:How to remove "Activate Windows" watermark?

Hi Bumzz

I'm not sure if I will be able to help you with your problem entirely as it seems that the most likely solution would be to buy a new product key.

What I am wondering is had you activated Windows 7 before you upgraded? What version of Windows 7 did you have before you upgraded?

I am not entirely sure if replacing your cpu and motherboard would make a difference unless you have a OEM product key which is specifically bound to your computer when you purchase it. I am thinking that this is the most likely scenario and unfortunately you might have to go purchase another key or get someone to embed your previous product key into the new motherboard (I am not sure if this is physically possible). This will require you to look at the UEFI firmware on your old motherboard.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

"out of range" is most commonly caused by a resolution\frequency setting that the monitor does not support.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop computer and somehow I lost the function when I insert a cd or dvd I no longer get the window that says, "Windows can perform the same action each time you insert a disk or connect a device of this kind. What do you want to do?"
Then you have options such as use realplayer to open, etc.
I now have to go into the drive and open it myself.
Any help would be much apppreciated.
Thanks,

I was using VMware (Windows XP), when I switched back to the host (Windows 8). I was prompted by a message that said "Windows is unable to activate, activate using PC settings" (Or something similar). I reactivated it using those settings. Why would Windows 8 just randomly deactivate ? Could someone else possibly be using my key ?

On the control panel it says "Activated since 05/14/2013" when it was first activated months before that.

A:"Windows is unable to activate" why would it do this ?

There have been updates to Windows Activation that have taken place quietly via Windows Update. Some users are having to re-verify they're legit. It happens.

I heard MS changed some ActiveX nonsense, but I'd like to get rid of this annoying message EVERY TIME I go to to a webpage!

A:"Click Here to Activate and Use This Control"

Go to Internet Options > Security Settings > Custom Level, scroll down to the ActiveX options and change from 'prompt' to 'disable' or 'enable'.

'Disable' is safer but some pages that use ActiveX might not load properly.

I was using avg anti-virus. First hint of trouble is automatic updates could not be started from the tray or the control panel. Then pop-ups. Downloaded Spybot S&D - it cleaned "vernaudo (sp) virus" and all worked - for about 10 minutes. Even contributed to their web site.

It's baaaaack. Now Spybot S&D won't work either. Tried some suggestions from previous posts. Nothing. What is going on here? I do have a Hijcakthislog. Any assisatnce appreciated.

I found the following post from 2002 that describes the problem I'm having. The thread is closed but it says I can re-ask the question. So, anyone who has a suggestion, I'm ready to listen. I've read it probably has to do with corrupted registry.

Quoted earlier post:"I have a Sony Vaio desktop computer and somehow I lost the function when I insert a cd or dvd I no longer get the window that says, "Windows can perform the same action each time you insert a disk or connect a device of this kind. What do you want to do?" Then you have options such as use realplayer to open, etc. I now have to go into the drive and open it myself. Any help would be much appreciated."

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

Hello,

When my laptop wakes up from stand-by or from hibernation mode, it pops up this dialog box asking me to

"Please choose which application should receive the image"

and has a list of applications below (currently):

"Imaging
Microsoft Office Word
Photoshop
Picasa2"

This also happens when I attach an external monitor to my laptop. The pop-up window goes away regardless if I select an application and click OK or click Cancel, and its the same behavior - the window goes away and nothing further happens. Its not a major problem, as everything works fine, but its just annoying. If anyone knows what's going on and how this can be fixed, I'd appreciate a reply.

Attached is a screenshot of the pop-up window.

Thanks!

I'm trying to change the colour of my toolbar and the headers of other windows that I open. But when I type "change window glass colour" into the start menu I don't get the option to do that. I know that there must be an option to do this in Windows 7 because my laptop has the same OS and I have changed it several times on that. I have read in another thread that it might be to do with Windows Aero. But the troubleshooter is bringing up nothing and changing the Theme from "Basic" to "Aero" and back has no effect on being able to change the window glass colour.

I can send screenshots to any replies if that will help. Any replies greatly appreciated as this is bugging me.

Thanks,
Sam.
 

A:Changing the "Window Glass Colour" in Windows 7 Home Premium

You need aero active to do what you want. Whether or not win7 aero works or not also has a lot to do with your video driver. You should check with the video card (or motherboard if applicable) manufacturer's website for the latest driver version that is applicable. Also try googling to see if there is a way to determine whether aero is active or not.

Here is one example




There is a corresponding service UxSms (Desktop Window Manager Session Manager- Provides Desktop Window Manager startup and maintenance services).

This starts a process dwm.exe. With this started, AERO is enabled (if stopped AERO is disabled). So basically if the process dwm.exe runs, AERO is enabled (read the comments, this means that AERO themes might, but not necessarily have be used. However, without DWM no AERO).Click to expand...

I get a window at bootup that I can't seem to get rid of or know what it's about. In the window is the text...
"This content cannot be displayed in a frame
To help protect the security of information you enter into this website, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame.
What you can try:

the last line is linked and goes to...
javascript:makeNewWindow();

I don't want to click it as I don't know where it goes to. This window is just there, at bootup, without any other programs running. Anyone know what the heck is going on?

a window pops up saying "Wait While Windows Configures Search Settings", it always fails because it can't find the SearchSettings.msi package, and asks for its location. I have done a search but cannot find it, on trying to close it an error 1706 is reported in another small window
