Check under services.msc whether Software Protection service is running - you may need to restart it.

xxx.png I really appreciate you trying to help me! I think the real problem is that my windows won't activate at all. It was working fine up till a week ago. Then now every time i turn on my pc it says please activate, i click activate, and this is what happens.
