Is it asking you to click on a link to fix the problem?  I have had a similar pop up when I've mistype URL and a pop up pops up saying I have a virus and wants me to contact Microsoft. Microsoft does not send pop messages.

Hello Dave, the travel is the message is a pop-up notification, which appears every now and then oh should I say very frequently in one session.

Subject: [TechTalk] Windows license will expire soon
 

Hello all,

 

First of all, I hope you all had a happy Christmas and new year.

 

As the subject says, I got a notification saying that my windows license will expire soon, and had two options, go to PC settings or close buttons. When I went to PC settings I there was an activate button and a place to write a key.

 

I got my laptop some years ago with Windows 8, which I was able to upgrade freely to Windows 8.1.

 

My issue is, does this kind of license expire? Is there something I could do to avoid it?

 

Thank you in advance for your advice.
