Default Activate Windows

A couple of years ago I did a clean install of a new copy of windows 10 Home on my computer. The software was purchased from a major high street retailer
In recent weeks I get a message to activate windows, but If I try it tells me the key is no longer valid
It suggest I have made changes to the system since the initial installation, which I havent.
If I do a full reinstallation will this solve the problem

Default Re: Activate Windows

Try running the Windows 10 Activation Troubleshooter and see if that resolves the issue.
