    Blue screen says to activate windows pop up every few hours


    This is how it look like :



    This is in my country language but it doesn't matter (btw its says :"go to settings to activate windows"), anyway any idea how to prevent it pop up? if I don't want to activate windows...

    Thanks!

    You will continue to get that pop-up until you actually activate Windows. I learned about that back when installing Windows and the activation process was first introduced [several years and versions ago].

    I don't think you've bought Windows in the store, do you? :/

    I'm not sure what the course of events are after the grace period ends but it should allow you to input a key to activate. Something may have screwed your licensing files - have you used any piracy stuff on there?

    I have this PC pretty long time and from what I remember my windows was activated before the last time I formatted it.
    I have tried to use some activators to activate it back, maybe that what caused to the problem?

    That's exactly what I'm wondering and I have a sneaky suspicion...

    Well, it depends how it was originally activated...?

    If legit, either via Store or upgrade, it will have a digital licence and an upgrade-install (or preferably clean install) may repair the corrupt files and get activation back...
