    Windows 10 free update deactivated itself


    So, im not happy about that fact, Windows 10 deactivated itself. I can still use it but that big fat watermark in the bottom right corner is really annoying. So my question is: Is there a way to reactivate it? When trying to use some Windows activators it most times says: "TAP Adapter fail" or something like that. Is there a way btw a key that may actually work? If really nothing helps (I would like to keep my data cause i have lots of gigs of games installed) is it possible to install a new version of Windows 10 without loosing data of C and D drive?

    Have you tried contacting the shop where you bought the PC from?

    Run showkeyplus from this forum. It will tell you all available Windows keys on the system, including the Product Key that was present before the upgrade (for in place upgrades) and keys stored in bios:

    Also, if you post here what versions showkey plus says the different keys are for, maybe we can figure out what happened with activation.

    From an elevated command prompt ("run as administrator" command prompt) type slmgr /dlv

    Post the results here and we might be able to figure something out. Your initial post says, "When trying to use some Windows activators it most times says: "TAP Adapter fail" or something like that." That sounds like some illegal activation server is attempting to be used.
