    Windows 10

    Clean installation


    Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble with activation of windows. It was working fine but suddenly, I don't know why, I used KMS tool to activate windows 10 version 1604 anniversary update. I immediately decided to uninstall it and clean install the Creators update without using KMS tool. I wanted to use it without activation but I see that it's showing activated even though I didn't use KMS tool on the new installation of Creators update. How do I fix this issue?

    Hi there, Vectorized. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    Sorry, but your statement and question is confusing. What exactly is the problem if it activated?

    It seems like @Vectorized somehow installed KMSPico "by accident". If the original Windows 10 had a legitimate activation, the digital license for it is stored on Microsoft Activation servers and will be retrieved automatically by Windows when it is connected to the internet, assuming a legitimate product key is being used. What are the results of:
    slmgr /dlv?
