    Depends on; if system files were tampered (aka dirty hacking) an Update might revert the changes. Proper activation on the other hand can't be neither detected nor revoked.

    Question is, what did you do to your system?

    Good start would be to check what the system has to report. In admin CMD (Win-Key+X and then 'A'):

    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv
    Right-click into CMD window to 'Mark' the output and save with ENTER to clipboard, paste it here in [CODE][/CODE] tags.

    All good here :D. System isn't 'hacked' at all, instead seems to be activated properly by a KMS solution.

    You're good to go and can install updates with no problems :good3:.

    KMS = KeyManagementServer. It's a way enterprises/universities and co. use to activate hundreds of machines inside their own network. The KMS Emulators (slightly ab)use those mechanics to activate Windows.

    The monthly antimalware might eliminate your kms emulator.

    Microsoft Toolkit on this very forum would fix your activation even after malicious software removal tool and anything else.
