Watch out for bogus warnings to downgrade Windows 10

Watch out for bogus warnings to downgrade Windows 10

Then join our Team!

Unfortunately, after the troubleshooting completes, a majority of users are getting the message below which says you're running Windows 10 Home and need to downgrade. However, reports emerged later of similar problems on PCs that had only ever run Windows 10. For customers that have deployed Pro in their work environments, this is creating headaches with unnecessary support tickets from users who suddenly think they may now be using a pirated version of the software.

Amazon released the Alexa app for Windows 10 today, which lets you operate the Alexa voice assistant with your voice or keyboard from a PC. But don't worry, it was an issue with Microsoft servers, not your copy of Windows.

Around 5 p.m. ET, I started hearing reports from users on Twitter that their activation issues seemed to be resolved.

According to posts about this bug on Reddit and the Microsoft forums, someone had contacted Microsoft via their support chat and was told that Microsoft is aware and are working on the bug. Meanwhile, we'd recommend following the steps in this link: https://t.co/zbJd4ohrdo to help you troubleshoot Windows 10 activation errors.

So, in the event your license got deactivated on its own, just leave it as is and your PC should automatically get activated as soon as Microsoft fixes the activation server issue.

Following investigation into the issue, Microsoft's Jeff Jones issued a statement to press: 'A limited number of customers experienced an activation issue that our engineers have now addressed, ' he claimed early this morning.

If you go to Settings Update & Security Activation you may see the following message about your license not being valid. Either way, it is yet another annoying issue affecting Windows 10.
