HOW TO PERMANENTLY FIX "WINDOWS LICENSE WILL EXPIRE SOON" IN 2019

Most articles I write on are based on my personal experience and today after switching on my HP laptop, I got a pop-up notification on my screen alerting me about my windows license expiring.
Initially, I thought it was a minor glitch and it would fix itself (because my Laptop came with a factory-installed Windows 10 and it was meant to last for a lifetime, or whenever I upgrade to a higher Windows version).

So I ignored the notification and went about my normal activities of surfing the internet and also working on my website TRYBEWEB but the notification kept on distracting me by popping up on the screen and I have to close it every time it comes up, so I got irritated and decided to give my full attention and fix the error.


WHAT DOES WINDOWS LICENSE EXPIRING SOON MEAN?

Microsoft keeps rolling out Windows update (minor and major) with some of these update giving under the hood changes like security improvement, bug fixes anti-virus, etc, while major update gives a full upgrade to the Operating System of the computer (Windows Vista > Windows 7 > Windows 8 > Windows 8.1 > Windows 10).

With all these Major upgrades, users are expected to buy the official version of their OS from Microsoft and they are provided with a license key which is used to activate the Computer.

Some users tend to go for the trial version which gives them a license to use the OS for a limited period of time, after which it expires and they are expected to pay for further usage. So once a license expires, the users lose full privileges and some functionalities of their Windows PC (both Laptop and Desktop).

HOW TO FIX LICENSE ERROR ON WINDOWS PC 2019 METHOD

There are several methods used in fixing WIndows License error but Trybeweb will be sharing the method that worked 100% for me and since applying this, I have not faced further errors.

Method

  1. Go to Windows Task Manager by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting Task Manager in the Menu.
  2. Click on processes and you will see a long list of all processes (applications) running on your computer. Scroll down to find a running Process called Explorer Process (it is a system process so it is usually found at the bottom region so scroll there to find it).
  3. Once you find it, right-click on it and click on End Task. (this would make your windows background and all other activities to disappear but do not panic).
  4.  At the top of Task Manager, you will see a button called File, click on it and select Run New Task, a mini window will pop up and then you have to write these exact words "Explorer.exe" (don't add the quotes) and click on ok.
  5. At this point, the User Interface of your windows would go back to normal. Open Comand Prompt (CMD) by clicking the Windows key and the X key together then select CMD as Administrator (a menu would pop up just click on yes to continue).

Please restart the system for the changes to take effect" click on OK and restart your computer.
Congratulation your License error has been fixed and you won't get any further annoying pop-ups.
