HELP - Why is win 8 asking me to reactivate it?

Hi, I have now posted this message three times on my ion laptop but the message isn't getting through so I am using my daughter's laptop. I bought my laptop over a year ago now and it came with win8 pre installed. I have had no problems with it until recently when it started to tell me to activate win 8 - so far I haven't as I think this might be a scam but not sure. It has been suggested that my win8 license code has been copied or hacked so how do I find out? more importantly how can I correct this problem. I so need my laptop as I am doing my Uni exam for my degree so it has come at a bad time. What progs can I or should I dload to search for nasties? I have superantispy wear and AVG. Thanks in advance
