Hello Friends,

Recently I am encountering a serious issue in my Windows 10 PC that the windows key is not working properly. Most of the time, when I played online games, the issue gets started. After disable gaming mode by following the steps from here, I was enjoying the games for a while. Then the problem again starts. Any advice how can I fix the issue?

I assume your key is legit.
Have you tried the other methods in that article? Disabling gaming mode is only one tip out of 8.
A complete reinstall is the ultimate solution you can try.

More info is required from OP to assist:
  • Does a restart clear the issue?
  • Is it some games that this issue happens with and others not affected?
  • Are you using software that "capture" or emulates the Windows key? I ask because I have made some Autohotkey scripts during the years since I found that awesome tool, but if the code is poorly written you can end up having certain keys that hangs up.
  • Are you using certain appz (ok, this in same ballpark as above point) that is made for giving extra abilities in games ?
  • Are there any other issues with that computer ?

Many lines of code are compiled into executable files and system processes on your computer, such as slui.exe. It will control the authenticity of your Windows license. For a user to access all the features of Windows 10, you need permission, that is, a license reddit windows key.
