    On 11-19-2012 I installed Windows 8 Pro WMC and activated with the WMC key, always auto updated, no problems. On 01-10-2013 I installed COD Black Ops 2 along with Steam on the same system, and noticed it had become deactivated. I had backed up my activation with Advanced Tokens Manager, so I tried to restore my activation and got an error, so I rebooted and tried again, no luck. I decided to reboot in safe mode and try that but forgot about no F8 with Windows 8 until I clicked to restart, rookie move, I know. I let it go ahead and boot up and was going to tell it to reboot in safe mode then, but decided to check my activation one more time, still not activated. I clicked to activate and it and activated, now it shows up as Activated on 1-10-2013. Any thoughts anyone? Maybe I just got lucky and hit M$ severs when they where busy.

    Once again I see on this forum an arrogant SOB that does not seem to read the whole question.... My observation was that it became deactivated while installing something that had NOTHING to do with M$, then reactivated as a legit installation on normal M$ servers with no KMS or anything. I am simply stating an observation and asking for feed back and not some dumb ass remarks, ones like this who are not here to help others and just put sarcastic remarks should be banned as far as I am concerned. We are supposed to share info not degrade each other, as far as I know no one has commented about anything like I reported when I started this thread.

    Are your Windows 8 Pro legit?

    I mean about KMS Activated or leaked keys that is blacklisted now after the upgrade.

    No it is not legit, I used the delta pack and a WMC key is all, I backed up with your ATM, which is good thank you.

    So really...., my point is made, you do not and cannot read... Now, like a good little boy, go back and read the WHOLE thing. Because my point is that it DID work and REACTIVATED on a DIFFRENT day. Now go away little boy and let the adults discuss this as you seem to have no input except your dumb ass remarks.

    Well, the Windows 8 is not for pirates at this time.

    The activation is checked every time to prevent the unauthorized copies. You never will see this problem if your Windows 8 Pro was legit before the upgrade.

    That's just true.

    One of the first actions as Windows 8 start's is to check the activation is legit or not, or even activated on every start. As long as the key used is a certified legit key, there will be no problem.

    MS has give everybody the chance to buy a Windows 8 Pro Key for a damn low price. Those who still think they must carry on to cheat, have to pay the price, in this regard to get de-activated. It's a wrong decision to accuse MS for your failure, you have to accuse yourself. Even in an Country like Thailand, where the min. income is below US$ 10.00 a day, a lot people, who never paid for an MS License before, paid the amount of THB 2,000 for packed W8 Upgrade. Those who tell that US$ 60.00, 39.99 or even 14.99 is to expensive should take their computer to an Pawn Shop to get money for living!

    There still a few days time for to get legit and it would the best for those, who still cheating, to go that way. And if they do, they will have much less problems in the future!
