    Click on the ‘Change Action Center settings’. You’ ll get a new window wherein several options would be listed as to what sort of messages do you want from the Action Center.

    Under the head of ‘Maintenance messages’ you’ll find the option of ‘Device Software.’ Uncheck the box to turn off the activation messages.

  2. I can not uncheck it, it will not let me, under the “change action center settings. It isn’t a small pop up in the bottom of my screen, my whole screen turns blue and tells me to activate windows.

  3. I have changed the image. Now you can follow by ease.

  4. the first option doesn’t appear, and the second option I can not un check. Does the activate windows screen have to pop up first?
