    Your windows license will expire soon


    Hey guys,
    I keep getting the "your windows license will expire soon" popup in the Win 10 anniversary update. I disabled Windows License Manager and Windows Update in services.msc and did the slmmgr rearm thingy in CMD. Initially it kept popping up every minute or so. Now it only pops up twice in a row, when I log into Windows.
    Any ideas on what to do? All I can find seems to be for the original Windows 10, not the anniversary update.
    Thanks.

    This usually happens when a key is a volume licence key and pc cannot contact the company server to remain active.

    Run slmgr /dlv from an admin command prompt and post image (data is not confidential).
