    But the question remains... why is Alphamale getting the message that Windows is expiring soon when none of us on the same insider build are?

    If you right click on start icon, select command prompt (admin) and run slmgr /dlv what result do you get? This is mine:

    Because in your post #5 it shows that you have Windows 10 Home installed. You also have an outdated product key installed which expires on July 15. With Windows 10 Home insider installed, this is what your license information should look like:

    and your product key should be YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Don't know. You can try changing it to the generic product key, but my guess is that computer has never had a properly RTM Windows 10 on it and, therefore, does not have a digital entitlement for Windows 10 stored at Microsoft.

    You can run showkeyplus from this forum:
    Showkey - Windows 10 Forums

    Click on the product keys to blank them out, and post the results:

    You should be OK. What does the activation screen under settings -> updates and security look like? As long as it says Digital Entitlement or Digital License, you should be good and have a permanent digital license for Windows 10 stored on Microsoft activation servers:
