Default windows activation

I've had problems with this before but I see that my 30-day trial is still going but when I click it, it says it is activated.


The trial is almost done and i was wondering if im set with everything and after the trial will my pc be useable?

*im not the best with pc's and I no its a stupid question*

You can call up Microsoft and they can give you a new serial key. The reason yours is not working anymore is because you have used it to many times, either gave it out or re formated a few times? Just call them up ( number is given during the activation process), give them your current serial and they will give you a new one or can activate it over the phone

Here's how to reset it so that it's not "activated".


Put in a new key to activate it. You will need to get a new key.
