    I installed Win 8.1 PRO X64 from
    Windows 8.1 AIO 20in1 x86.x64 en-US Pre-Activated DaRT 8.1 Jan201
    earlier in the year with my new Mobo and CPU, but in the last few weeks it has become "un activated" and is requesting I Activate it?
    I used to run Win 7 and use Daz's Loader quite happily, but thought I would try 8.1 as it does run BF4 and other games better than 7.

    What's the bobby with the activation? has an update buggered me up?
    What are my options now?

    Cheers in advance fella's (and all the ladies out there!)

    If you're using an anti-virus program you'd need to allow the activator through it.
    I don't remember what I used in January, but it's probably either AutoQAD or AutoKMS.
    They have their respective folders in the Windows folder.

    If it's AutoQAD, and it won't work even with a manual run, then you can always try downloading Microsoft Toolkit and using that.

    Microsoft Toolkit - Official KMS Solution for Microsoft Products - did the trick!!!!
    Though if I am honest, I do not know why or how, but it has activated my copy again.
