Found 17th Jul 2014
I have installed windows 8.1 pro recently but then i realised the pro installation key was not the retail key and now my computer shows it isn't activated.

Is there a way to go back to the normal windows 8.1 without loosing any files and applications that has been installed??



I don't believe so, you will have to do a clean install of standard Win 8.1

After all the ball ache I've had with windows 8 , laptop and desktop I suggest either just keeping what you have and use regedit to dissable the windows activation messages , this is what I'm doing atm or just use a kms activater which I'm planning , windows 8 is a joke and just a trick to get as much money out of us as possible.

I put the windows 8 disk in my 7 machine after being told it would know I was upgrading and get windows 8 for £39.99 but it didnt.
