Great. Type Activation in the Cortana search bar and follow the link. It will start settings and should show you are Activated with a "Digital License".

Ok mate the link I gave you was for the straight ISO from Heidoc and as far as I know it is still available you should be able to make a bootable disk from that ISO and do a clean install using that generic code.

Like I think I said before it might be worth posting in the sister Ten Forum and ask Brink if you go to this
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums he will give the low down on everything.

Immediate fix

Brand new Dell 3040 with 7 Pro would not check for Updates - spin for hours.

Followed this and immediately corrected problem.

Can't thank you enough.

7) After all of the above is completed you can use Option 3 below to reset all of the windows updates components
Windows Update - Reset
I just wanted to say, whether or not the above-referred to reply (post #2) applies to the particular problem someone is having (and they are often subtly different), great respect to the kind and knowledgeable poster for the care and clarity of his explanation (if that's not too "creepy-bum-lick").

Exactly what separates a forum such as this as good forum from a bad forum.
