When I check from My Computer > Properties, I am seeing that it is activated with product ID. However when I clicked on more details, I am seeing "Your windows license will expire soon" (Your license to use Windows will expire on 10/6/2013)
Should I worry about the expiry date?

Welcome in Lenovo Forums
If the windows got expired , you will just need to activate the windows online and if the issue still exist so please send me a private massage with your machine Serial number
Waiting your reply

Thanks Aala, should I wait for the expiry date to lapse or we can do the activation now? Sorry for asking this, but is that different from the Action Center Windows activation?
I attempted to activate using the same product key but getting this error below:

Yes I did these slmgr steps earlier, and when I reactivate from Action center, that's how I get the error code, and the expiry shows Oct 2013. I did the scan now and rebooted, still no go.
Are there any other step to activate or is it only from the Action Center?
