    QuestionWhat 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:

      Activate now
      Ask me later

    • The system shuts down every hour.
    • The following event ID is logged in the Application log:

    Log Name:   Application
    Source:       WLMS
    Event ID:     100
    Description: The license period for this installation of Windows has expired. The operating system will shut down every hour.
