Actually, there are no instructions. Datawait is a new type of ransomware. The best we can do it to disinfect the computer system but that will not decrypt the files.

Hello,
You said:
 after activation of Windows

How did you activate Windows?
If you have used illegal activation software to activate Windows, it is normal that your computer is infected, this type of software should be avoided.
This new ransomware also spreads via email attachments.
Be cautious.
