    has anyone discovered a way to get rid of this reminder popping up? (apart from activating) i missed out on the free activation and returned to windows 7.

    No, such things are not available until today. The reminder is not the only problem you got without having the system activated. No updates can be done and some customizations are not available.
    Why not simply run MTK and you are set?

    I thought you still can't activate with WMC?

    You can activate the WMC by KMS but only for 30 days instead of 180 days.

    you can install the AutoKMS and it will handle it for you as well. Set an exception in your AV to allow c:/windows/autkms/autokms.exe
