    So my brother had a windows message pop-up that says he needs to activate his windows 10 not that long ago even though it's only been about 3 months since he has this PC. No problem, I installed KMSPico again (don't know why it got uninstalled) and clicked activate.

    Today, he restarted his PC because it was running slowly when trying to watch a video he just rendered. Windows gave a pop-up that told him "his PC would reset the next time he restarted'', though I don't know how much of this is true because he said it went away pretty quickly. Also his background changed back to the stock windows background. And I know for a fact that that is a side effect of not activating your windows but windows says in the control panel it's activated. Do I need to change some setting in KMSPico or something for it to work properly? Did I use the wrong version of windows (not sure which one I used exactly)?

    Help is much appreciated!

    KMSpico has its own support thread, here. But it seems like kmspico has nothing to do with the changes, it looks like the userprofile is a temp one.

    I did a tiny bit of research on that and found I could see if it is in the users folder and I did see the TEMP folder there. Why does windows 10 log into a temp user? Does it mean the user is corrupted or something?

    I think you've got a virus that wants to do bad things.
    ctrl-alt-del run task mgr and kill anything you don't recognize.
    then run malwarebytes anti malware to get rid of the bad stuff
    then run kmspico and see what it's doing.

    I downloaded KMSPico from MDL. The computer had a s**tton of virus at some point so we had to do a windows recovery, we did the reinstall windows but keep all files which also deletes all .exe files and since then I don't think my brother did anything that could have given him a virus. Is it possible for a virus to survive that windows "reinstall'?

    the only way to know 100% is to do a clean install and wipe everything out.
