You start your Windows session an the first you see is an annoying warning at the bottom right that asks to activate your Windows copy. You may have previously entered a product key to avoid or remove the “activate windows” watermark, but it could happen that this key was used in more than one installation, or the key was directly disabled by Microsoft because it was blacklisted in their database.
You might have bought one of these Ebay cheap activation keys expecting to get a permanent activation and get rid of that annoying message, but unfortunatelly you may have been victim of an unscrupulous seller who sold the same key to more than one person. This happens more often than you may think.
How about trying with an activator or loader to remove the watermark?
Before searching for one of these “shady” activators like KMS Pico, KMS Auto, and Microsoft Toolkit that are around the net, think it a minute and see if it worths taking the risk of getting an spyware or a backdoor installed in your PC for 4-5 dollars you could save, instead of getting a cheap product key with us or another respectable seller. Some of these tools may be harmless, im not saying they all include malware inside. The main problem is that it’s common not to find an official site to download them from their respective authors. You are usually in the need to download these activators from an unstrusted source like a forum or website that commonly place malware inside, bloatware or advertising and offer links to download them for “free”.
Then later you wake up one day and encounter these criminals asking you for big money to release your data.. If they didn’t have the chance of stealing your credit card data first. It’s called ransomware and it happens more often than you may think. There are safer ways to remove your activate Windows 10 watermark.

It may happen that the BIOS of the computer has a different product key stored, this is common when you purchase a pre-activated Windows PC. So, when you reset the machine, it still tries to activate with the key available in the BIOS.
