I'm trying to install Photoshop CC 2018 on my laptop that I bought recently. The laptop is second hand and not brand new. I was using it for the last few days. Windows was working fine but today when I try to install Photoshop CC 2018 it asks to update Windows. But the problem is my Windows is not activated. Can I try free Windows Activators? I found trusted and it provides virus free Windows Activator.

My advice would be buy a new Windows license, wipe the laptop, and start over.

That's a pirated and illegal Windows version, so obviously we can't help you with that.

Any possible solution? Or should I buy a license key?

I have a subscription and I have downloads the CC 2018 Installer.  If I install it offline on a machine.  It would not Activate on that machine  till I sign in to my account with the subscription through the Creative cloud desktop application on the machine I install CC 2018 and it would not activate if I have two current activated machines or would ask if I want to deactivate the activated machines. Photoshop need to be activated online.  CC 2018 subscription software and it is no longer easy to download offline installers. Adobe stopped that in PS 2020.   And now Creative Cloud Desktop will only install the last two version of Photoshop. Adobe does not support their Customers well they never have.
