I keep getting the message 'Activate windows 8' but I have been running it for ages since I bout the laptop. Win 8 came pre installed on my Toshiba laptop. at the bottom of the screen it says 'Windows 9 build 9200' no idea what that means. I have had this message several times no so do I hit the activate button or not? is it a scam or genuine?

That's a strange one. On the start page find control panel or if it's pinned to the desktop click on it. Once opened select 'Large Icons' top right where you see the text "View by:". Select 'System' in the list.

What does it show under 'Windows activation'?

If you google windows 8 9200 you will find some useful info.
