This is completely normal if your trial period is expired check this Kb article
Question: What happens when the 180-day evaluation period expires?
Answer: When the evaluation period expires, you experience the following:
Windows changes the desktop wallpaper to a solid black background.
A watermark appears in the lower-right corner of the desktop together with the following warnings:
Windows license is expired
This copy of Windows is not genuine
When you log on to Windows, you are prompted with the following options:
Ask me later
- The system shuts down every hour.
- The following event ID is logged in the Application log:
Log Name: Application
Event ID: 100
Description: The license period for this installation of Windows has expired. The operating system will shut down every hour.
