Hello.


Because of a virus that i caught, and after several attempts at remove virus, without success, I decided to recover the system from my laptop asus g75vx.


But now when I go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center appears that my windows is not activated, i click on "enable" and gives me an error:


"Could not activate windows, error code: 0x8007232B, Error description:" The DNS name does not exist. "


Anyone know why is it that this is happening?

Greatly appreciate your help,

Thank you!

That error implies that you are attempting to activate a KMS Licensed version of Windows.

Please open an Elevated Command Prompt window (in Start, type 'Command' - a Command Prompt icon will appear, right-click on it, and select Run as Administrator)
At the Prompt, type

Licensingdiag.exe -report %userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\repfiles.cab

(note the spaces!)
two files will be put on your desktop -
open the 'report.txt' file in Notepad, and copy/paste the results to your response - you can ignore the repfiles.cab file for the moment, as it's only backup data

copy the result from the notepad file, and paste in into your post here in the forum - in your own thread.
