How to Reinstall Windows Without Having to Reactivate

Every time you format and reinstall your PC, you have to activate Windows again, which can sometimes be a pain once you’ve done it too many times. Here’s how to backup and then restore the activation status.

Advanced Token Manager easily allows you to back up all the information that Windows uses to check the validity of you copy of Windows.
