@bob3160  I have restarted and it's still activated
:) What's your current version? if it's not 1809, go ahead and use the update option or,
wait another month or less and update to the next release.

Interestingly, I have never had 1809 offered nor sat awaiting restart, etc.  Even a check of windows update reports 1803 is fully up to date.

I remember it took an eternity for my system to have 1803 offered/installed.

Think I'll install the spring creators update.  Will back up my settings first and create a system restore point.

Windows is activated again

Windows 10 News App Blunder Made Users Think They're Infected
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-news-app-blunder-made-users-think-theyre-infected/
Certainly not seen by all Microsoft users. This is the first I've heard of this.
I've never seen it on any of the computers I access.

You don't need to pay for an extended warranty to get the license you paid for when you originally bought the computer.
In any case, this is a problem that can only be addressed by Dell. No sense continuing to post here.

Improving the Windows 10 update experience with control, quality and transparency
https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2019/04/04/improving-the-windows-10-update-experience-with-control-quality-and-transparency/
My cynical reply to this that Microsoft wasn't able to complete the scheduled update ontime and that headline was a great way
to not be blamed for not having the April 2019 update available on time. :)
