Current version - Windows 7 SP1
I read various forum responses on this subject and tried them. I was able to get the problem go away 4 times (45 days each between each time) by using SLMGR -REARM or SLMGR /REARM and the SkipRearm count change from 0 to 1. This time when the problem appeared, I tried them all. Nothing works. I bought the Lenovo ThinkCenter M Series desktop from CDW 3 years ago (well, 3 years and 5 months). Lenovo wanted $$$ to fix the problem and CDW tells me that the Windows 7 license was only for 3 Years and is expired and I need to buy a new license for Windows 7 or an uplevel OS. Well, I never had any OEM license run out on me after 3 years since I usually use my computers for 5 years minimum. Is there any fix to this problem? Or, am I in the fix to spend money and buy a new license?
I cannot even get the Windows 10 Free upgrade. Even when the problem did not exhibit (through the fix applied), I could not get Windows 10.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
