    Are you talking about the activate button on the System window?
    Yes, the one in the Settings>Update & Security>Activation

    When i press on it it takes about 30 seconds for the button to be pressable gain. Are you saying I press on the button, wait the 30 secs or so, and then press it again? Wash, Rinse, and repeat?

    btw... I don't always get an error message. It is blank most of the time. What does that tell you?

    You're gonna click and release continuously even when it's not clickable... I know that does not make sense but apparently it works.
    Yes, that's normal.

    Ok, I pressed it once and the process begins and I continuously press on the now disable activate button. So far this hasn't worked. Is there a certain number of clicks I need to do or do I just keep on clicking until I get an activation message which so far has been 'Windows can't activate. Try again later.'?

    You are gonna click on activate button continuously. (as fast as possible) You should do that until you see the "Windows is activated" message.

    OR, you can open a command prompt and execute "slmgr /ato" continuously until it succeeds.

    I tried both methods and so far no love. Did it work for you immediately? Maybe I just have to keep trying the two methods until it works or I finally get tired of doing all of this. I guess I'll have x number of days to activate before I get some sort of message or watermark.

    With the first method I activated it in approx. 10 minutes.
    No, you won't get any watermark whatsoever, as now your computer cannot connect to the activation server.

    That's the photo you posted, and as you see it says that you must connect your PC to Internet to activate.)
    That's because there are a lot of computers that are trying to connect to the server. So be patient, your computer will be activated.
