activate windows 8 question

  eysha1 20:50 12 Apr 2014

I keep getting the message 'Activate windows 8' but I have been running it for ages since I bout the laptop. Win 8 came pre installed on my Toshiba laptop. at the bottom of the screen it says 'Windows 9 build 9200' no idea what that means. I have had this message several times no so do I hit the activate button or not? is it a scam or genuine?

That's a strange one. On the start page find control panel or if it's pinned to the desktop click on it. Once opened select 'Large Icons' top right where you see the text "View by:". Select 'System' in the list.

What does it show under 'Windows activation'?

thanks rdave13 didn't get your post, it says windows is activated so why still getting the windows 8 activate message. bottom right hand corner of screen says win8 9200 what is this. delete other threads if more than one please.

many thanks E p.s have installed malware anti-bytes and superanti-spyware
