    Every couple days this pops up in the bottom right corner of my screen. I need to then go to control panel/system/activate windows/troubleshoot and re activate it.

    It is a legit copy.

    Suggestions?

    Steam:

    Are you sure its activated?

    Go to Settings -> Update and Security -> Activation

    What does it say there

    Windows is activated with a digital license.

    Steam:

    Can you open up the command prompt and type in
    slmgr /dli

    This command doesn't change anything. It just displays your license information. What we are looking for is License Status and Time Remaining

    Steam:

    Try
    slmgr /xpr

    It should show the time remaining since the above didn't.

    I never ran into this before. I am not sure what the next step is, have you tried reactivating it?

    It says "This machine is permanently activated"

    It "re-activates it" each time i have to troubleshoot it.

    Steam:

    Do you know your product key on hand? I would write it down somewhere. Some of the commands we may get to might erase your key to reactivate.

    This command shouldn't erase your key, but i would copy it down anyway.
    slmgr.vbs -ato

    That will force an activation. If that doesn't work, I guess the next step would be to erase your key and try to reactivate it.

    By any chance did you upgrade from an unlicensed or pirated version of windows 7?

    Steam:

    I mean, that is for pirated copies. If you are going to use something like that you are probably better off using Microsoft ToolKit
    http://freemicrosofttoolkit.com/

    But I guess either one is fine to use. I wouldn't download a torrent tho I would go straight to their site.

    Microsoft didn't help me one bit when i had this problem. Kmspico did the job, but i guess you should try all the options and keep KMSPICO as a final resort.
