As above my Acer Aspire 5253-BZ602 laptop is showing this after 5 months without activation notice. Ran Auslogic's Speed Booster 9 and when I restarted the activation request started. Any ideas? Thanks.

Make sure Windows Firewall service enabled type below command.




Press Windows key + X

Click Command Prompt (admin)

Enter the following command:


Sc config MpsSvc start= auto
Sc Start MpsSvc
cscript C:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ato



Above commands enables Windows Firewall service and try to activate Windows.




If above commands won't work you’ll need to use a valid product key to activate Windows. Your product key should be in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows, in the box Windows came in, included with the packaging your PC came in, or on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the back or bottom of your PC.

If you’re activating Windows 10 (Version 1511 or higher), you can use a valid Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10 product key.


If you have a valid product key, use it to activate Windows:


    Select the Start Menu button, then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.

    Select Change product key, and then enter the 25-character product key.






Windows 8.0, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 came preinstalled on my computer, you can find the product key?


Press Windows key + X keys

Click Command Prompt (admin)

Enter the following command:


wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey



Hit Enter key.


The product key will be revealed, copy the product key then enter it.



Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Change the product key then enter the new product key then click Next to Activate



You can also use NirSoftProduKeyutility to view OEM product key and retail product key.





If you are unable to activate Windows 10 after all the above and you are certain you have the correct edition installed, then please attempt phone activation:
