About a month or so ago, I found a curious message that showed up in the lower right corner of my monitor telling me "Windows not activated". I pretty much ignored it as everything was running ok, but this morning the latest Windows update fouled my Hotmail account, telling me the settings are out of date, and when I go to try to fix them, I get an error message telling me "Something went wrong. We are unable to do that"
It seems I need to upgrade to Windows 10 pro or something, and there's a product id and product key, with instructions to change the product key. When I attempt that, I'm informed that the product key is wrong.
Somehow the previous update has me with the Pro version instead of the Home version, and I can't change settings or any other info without activating the darned Windows 10.......
I'm really baffled here. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I have also discovered that I am unable to open pdf's that I have downloaded, and my download folder is empty as well. Curious.
