Microsoft
warned that there is another serious problem …

Update: November 10 – Microsoft officially confirmed the problem and said it hopes to start implementing a correction for the next 24 hours. & Nbsp;

Spotted by The registerMicrosoft activation servers have accidentally started downgrading expensive Windows 10 Pro systems to cheaper Windows 10 Home PCs, thus invalidating their licenses. Needless to say, this is a bad financial blow (home is $ 119, Pro is $ 199) and interested users are furious.

Windows 10 is causing serious new problemsMicrosoft

"After upgrading to Insider Build 18277 my digital license for Windows 10 is no longer valid, I do not understand! … No hardware changes, nothing has changed, I do not know what to do," tweeted an interested user. & Nbsp;

"One of our three year Lenovo Yogas has just decided to launch the Windows activation error 0xC004C003.The Windows diagnostic tool says that the machine has the license of Windows 10 Home … Dumbasses" tweeted another.

And it's not just the upgraders that are affected. There are problems with automatic downgrades of Windows 10 Home reported with new installations even on different versions of Windows Pro.

"The same problem on Dell computers with Windows 10 Pro 1803 that we have just purchased, needs to be deployed to clients but not activated," another user explained on Reddit.

Microsoft's answer? It is not great.

Windows 10 has a quality control problemMicrosoft

On his officer Answers page, Microsoft warns that there is a "temporary problem" with the company activation server but has not revealed further details. As for users who call Microsoft call centers, the answer it is simply to wait for a solution.

Like The Register, I contacted the Microsoft press team for an answer and I will update this article if one is received.

There remains a serious problem of contention with many users that Windows 10 has taken a much greater control over their computers, making it difficult to avoid such incidents. It is also the fourth major accident this year.

In January, Windows 10 updates turned PCs with AMD hardware into a "state not bootable"was supposed to be a major update in April tight for causing the infamous blue screen of death (BSOD) and the aforementioned October update permanently deletes personal files. Even the most avid Windows fans have now accused Microsoft of having a "Software quality problem".

Right now, Microsoft has a lot of work to do. Above all because its updating services are becoming more expensive, even on previous versions of Windows
