    disable "your windows license will expires soon" alert


    I looked all over the net but couldn't find a single solution.
    My windows 8.1 license will expire in next month and that's fine by me. the thing I don't want is that annoying pop-up alert everytime i start my PC.

    This will disappear as soon as you activate it.
    Do you have a valid key?

    Well, the try before you buy is only good for a month. You either need to purchase a key or live with the pop-up until Windows no longer works.

    I believe you can still download a 90-day eval version. But, you would have to do a complete re-install.

    But, it will give you another 90 days.
