    Windows need activation all of a sudden - 0x8007232B error


    I am sorry if posting this thread is being repetitive since I see a ton of these in the archives but none of them confirm a working resolution. I have had a Lenovo Ideatab Lynx K3011 tablet with a full Windows 8 OS for nearly a year now. All of a sudden the Message Center started displaying a message that Windows needs activation.

    If I try to activate it, it reports that it was unable to do so with error code 0x8007232B.

    I also recently did a clean install but the activation required message still comes up. Any ideas how to fix this?

    I would try a malware scan with MBAM

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried a malwarebytes scan but it produced nothing. It found no problems. The activation message still pops up.
