I don't believe I've done anything that should make it do this, but for the last 3 or 4 days my test VM with Win 10 has been popping-up a full-screen "Activate Windows" Metro screen with one button in it that takes me to PC Settings.
Attempting to activate from there fails. I have tried entering the Enterprise Product Code, which is the one it shows the last few characters of when it takes me to the PC Settings app.
SFC / DISM don't fix it, though the component store shows as corrupted.
I could, of course, reinstall it afresh, and I may do that as I have nothing I can't redo, but it will take a little time.
Any idea what I can do to stop this thing repeatedly asking for Activation?
Thanks in advance.
