    hi, I just noticed my win 8 pc is not activated anymore. I used ms toolkit to activate it to begin with and it worked fine. I tried ms toolkit again and nothing is activated. Should I try and see if kms method will work? Plz let me know.

    thx

    Try reinstall Windows 8, then activate again with MTK.
