    Hi Superfly

    I had the same issue with my Lenovo laptop having a preinstalled version of Windows 8.1, just sometime back I started seeing the "Activate Windows" message. I tried activating but it kept on failing and asked for providing the correct key, my laptop never came with a Key.
    Checked with my Lenovo dealer but even he was of no help. Struggled for almost 8-10 months, tried all the Key finders available, but all in vain.
    Just came across your post today while googling around and tried the solution. To my surprise and astonishment it worked perfectly. I got the original OEM key for my Windows and was successfully able to activate the same.

    I would like to thank you a ton for your efforts and solution. You have definitely been a saviour.

    Thanks

    You are welcome, it's great that it's still useful... as old as it is - I'm assuming you are using the vbs script - it's grown up into ShowKeyPlus now

    You are welcome...

    Thanx for making the effort to post - it's always nice to know if an app works or not... good is great, bad is good.. that just means some work needs to be done! Anyway I'm glad I could help!

    Windows 8.1


    Good day,

    After my Windows 10 crashed i had to reinstall the oem Windows 8 on my PB easynote. After updating to 8.1 it would also not auto activate. Keeyfinders gave the wrong key. But the scrip in this post did the work.

    So you see how important it is not to remove old threats like this.

    Thanks for the script.
