Windows Activation After 30 Days

PROBLEM: Windows Activation has expired after 30 days.

SOLUTION: Expand activation to 120 days.

  • Start --> All Programs --> Accessories.
  • Right-click on Command Prompt and got to Run as Administrator. (You might need to know a password to go beyond this point.)
  • You should default to the following folder: c:\Windows\system32\
  • Type in slmgr -rearm
  • Hit return.

NOTE: This is not a permanent solution. You will have to do this three times a year. Owning an illegal copy of Windows is breaking the law.

NOTE: You cannot do this after 3 times so you need to reset the count of the times you have done it.

  • Start --> Type regedit in the open field.
  • Do a search for SkipRearm.
  • Change the value to 00000001.
  • Repeat the steps above. It should accept it and then restart quickly afterwards.
