hi all,

thanks for taking some time to read this.

I'm having a lot of issues with my windows 10. A few days ago it crashed and i needed to do a recovery of it. So i did a clean install, but it aborted by itself half way the procedure. (tried it twice both times it stopped halfway the procedure)

Now a small overview of all issues i have now

  • It says that it can't activate windows license(i have the license, a legit one, but it still says it's not correct)
  • License troubleshooter can't connect with the internet, while all other apps can
  • even though i'm logged in as the admin, there are several folders i can't do any changes in as i don't have the access or the rights to do so
  • software protection services are stopped and i can't get them to start as also here my access is denied
So at this moment my windows isn't registered and i can't get it fixed and my windows doesn't work how it should be...

thanks for you help...

kind regards


Steve

What source did you use for the installation media to perform the "clean install"

Get the latest ISO by using the media creation tool from here
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Save it to a folder (that you can find) on your computer
Double click it to mount it which should create a virtual drive in File Explorer.
Run setup.exe from there to perform an in-place upgrade repair or your existing installation

This is a relatively safe albeit time consuming task, but....
Should allow you to keep existing programs, drivers, etc., intact.

I would still make sure that all my critical data was backed up and I would create a disk image just in case something doesn't go as planned.
