what edition of Windows 7?

Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate?

 

also, did this occur while updating Windows (aka. installing updates thru Windows Update) or did Windows 7 suddenly lose activation status?

Could be key was taken off.

Registry corruption perhaps 

 

I doubt Microsoft activates old software like win7 anymore from. their servers. 

 

just Daz reactivate it..

2. either you believe or you know

Are you saying that you have never done a new and completely clean OP system installation in 7 years?

How old is this computer anyway? Seven years ago, no Windows 7 pre-installed computer came out of any factory, then the sale of Windows 7 was banned altogether.
Also, what kind of slic does this computer have, is this OP activated as OEM or Retail or something else (for example VL, MAK, etc).
Is the installation typical or something else?
And you say that every night the activation disappears?
Also, be nice and tell me how you reactivate it?

Then there is nothing to be surprised about, these keys may be outdated a long time ago, KMS servers are likely down, etc. In case there is really nothing wrong with Windows, it makes sense to reactivate with a real key or using the DAZ loader. But I highly doubt that Windows itself is fine, it would be the eighth wonder of the world if it is.
It would be reasonable to do a fresh clean installation and then activate with a genuine key or as I said with DAZ.
But maybe now would be the time to abandon this age-old and unsupported version by Microsoft and install something more modern.
But as long as it is not known what kind of hardware it is, nothing can be recommended. It's (I mean hardware) also quite possibly very outdated...and quite unusable.

But you can try, maybe you can use some more time if you can't buy a newer one.

 

First tell what the computer it is, what the motherboard, what processor, ram, graphics, etc. We may be able to advise on what can be done with it and what to try to install there.

Why still using Windows 7?

Even with old hardware, one can use Windows 10 or 11.

There are ways to bypass old-hardware restrictions...;)
