How to Remove Windows Activation Logo


  • Launch Registry Editor: Press Win + R (Win is the Windows logo key), type Regedit, and press Enter.
  • Go to the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ SoftwareProtectionPlatform \ Activation"
  • Change Manual parameter on the right side of the editor window. Double click on it and set the value to 1.

  • After selecting the items “System” and “TrustedInstaller,” mark for them “Deny” in the list of permissions and click the “Apply” button.
  • Click the “Advanced” button, and on the next screen, click “Disable inheritance”, confirm, and then delete the TrustedInstaller and System items for which the “Type” is specified as “Allow”.
  • Apply the settings you made and restart Windows
