Windows Activation Error Code 0x81000039 Fixed.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I own an HP laptop with built-in Windows 7 Pro which I later updated to Windows 10. I also own an older Windows 7 32-bit system which is not used. A 1TB USB is connected to this PC. However, when I try Windows Backup on my Windows 10 PC, after few hours, it does not move beyond 14%, and I get the nasty error code 0x81000039. Help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hello, I have seen this error on Windows 7 mostly, and not on any other systems. This error shows up when trying to use Windows backup. So you can try to change the NTLM authentication level. Please perform the following steps:

1. Click on the Start button at the bottom left corner of the screen. Enter using keyboard “gpedit.msc” in the Search area. You can also type in the Run window which will open by pressing Windows key and R key together.

2. Locate to the following address “Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\.”

3. In the right section of the screen, look for “Network security: LAN Manager Authentication level properties,” and double-click on it.

4. Change the existing level to “Send LM & NTLM and use NTLMv2 security if negotiated”.
