  27. Attention just type what is within the cotetion marks "slmgr -rearm"
    I did typed "slmgr -rearm." and it did not work because I had the dot at the end.
    Also when you run cmd right click on it and go to run as administrator. Make sure is saying system32 and not your username. If is the user name I don't know if it will work, but as administrator it worked for me.

  28. I checked my user account and it says I am the administrator. But still I keep getting "Access Denied. You need elevated privileges for this command"
