    If your hard drive is formatted in MBR and not GPT you could just have used Daz loader to activate KMS activation is only for 180 days your brother probably used a kms script it may run a scheduled task to to keep activation going it may also have added entries to stop security essentials.

    Personaly if this is fresh install and it is formatted in MBR just use Daz loader.

    I can post the .bat also in code tags if you need / want , to check if it did something "weird" or strange to the system.
    Thank you.

    This confirms my thoughts, it used a public online KMS server, i would never use it.

    There is nothing in that script that would switch of Security Essentials.

    The ISO was from Heidoc.
    The activation method is from outside as my brother told me.

    Was it an official MSDN iso or one of those crappy updated iso's from a few months ago?

    I got this by private convo, you can try at your own risk:
    Code:
    Admin Command Prompt:
    
    slmgr /ckms
    (clear the name of KMS server used to default and port to default)
    
    slmgr /ckms-domain
    (clear the specific DNS domain in which all KMS SRV records can be found)
    
    slmgr /upk
    (uninstall current installed product key and return license status back to trial state)
    
    slgmr /cpky
    (clear the product key from the registry to prevent disclosure attacks)
    
    slmgr /rearm
    (reset the licensing status and activation state of the machine)
    
    Reboot, then use Daz's loader.
    
    Hopefully that should clear the kms stuff and clear the key(s) etc then rearms OS.
    
    Not 100% sure it will work unless someone else has more info.
