    Windows 8.1 Pro needs activation?


    More than one and a half years ago, I purchased a Lenovo laptop for a new employee who, after working for four months, left the company. The laptop has since been sitting idle most of the time. Two days ago, I turned it on. I believe I saw a message saying the Windows 8.1 Pro will expire in May. I haven't seen that message since.

    What kind of a license does the laptop have that will expire in one and a half years?

    There aren't any that I am aware of - it's either a 90-day evaluation period or 180 day KMS activation interval.
    Should you require a more in-depth analysis please post a WDT diag. report.

keeps asking for reactivation. does not allow reactivation. I used a registry cleaner. Maybe this is the problem. I have tried a few fixes on other forums. Please let me know what other info I need to share.
