Accounts :: New Upgrade - Password Lost

Jan 11, 2016

I have an Acer laptop that is only used for the Internet. The OS was recently upgraded to Windows 10, not by me. The problem is a forgotten or misused password. I can't get beyond enter your password. I'd like to reset the password, but Windows 10 isn't letting me do that.

Local Admin Password Lost During Upgrade

Dec 15, 2015

My wife's laptop upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1 several months ago. As soon as it finished she lost access to her old files. And we didn't remember the admin passwords. I created a new account for her. But she needs her old files......emails,recipes,etc. Then we were out of the country for a month.I am not very computer literate. I've probably spent 60-70 hours trying to learn because of this problem. I stumbled through Ophcrack with no luck. I used the Utilman reset last week. I reset the 2 local admin passwords to blank and created a new admin account. There was another administrator account that I couldn't reset. I don't know if it is a higher authority or what.

The new Local Account Administrator I created seems to have limitations. Some things I've tried,it responds I don't have permission. I changed my wife's acct from admin to user.I thought I would be able to reset her password. It doesn't give me that option.

Nov 12, 2015

Ok so i am furious with Micro$oft now! the other day i was FORCED to change my microsoft account after much nagging i did so and i dont like changing logins too much. (this was a week ago)

now for some random reason on earth without my permission my windows login also changed login passwords to the microsoft account. I DONT WANT THAT! that password is too long and complicated for someone who locks his computer every 5 minutes or so. why did this just kick in now? i changed M$ account pass over a week ago and today it decides to change windows login?! can i change JUST my local windows login separate from microsoft login?

if i try to change pass from settings it it goes online and says you cant use password that has been used before.

Accounts :: Password Text Box Flips Back To Pre-password Screen?

Feb 2, 2016

after an update at starting, tablet laptop start gives picture/clock screen, that slides to the password screen but when password block is touched on screen or mouse clicked the screen flips back to the picture/clock ... how to deal with this kind of lock out that the typing box won't open and loops to clock screen? have turned off for an hour to see if that does it..but if not...would restarting into a repair or recovery be possible fix...i have never been able to get into safe mode without being logged in but have gotten into recovery during a restart which made me wonder if entering a recovery during boot and reversing the upgrade was possible if all else fails...

Accounts :: Accessing As Multi Accounts All Having Picture Password

Aug 21, 2015

I don't know if it's my installation, but I can't really switch to select a differet login user once I turn on my PC, and it brings to the last logged on user and his Picture password screen.

Both users have a Picture password and I don't have any chance to pick the other one, unless:

- I select a different type of access
- ask for password
- then the damn multi-user LH box appears
- and I can pick another one.

Then do the opposite until I get back to his Picture password screen. Odd and unbelieavable, considering how well streamlined in Win8.1...

The old way I found for Windows 8.x (HERE) is not working anymore, as I went in the Registry of mine upgraded Win10 and found it was already correctly modified (=1), but the login screen is a mess, nonetheless.

I'm ok with Task scheduling batches, reg modification, whatever. But it's Win10 Home, so no gpedit involved..

(it's a Dell Venue 11 Pro)

Lost Local Admin Password?

Dec 22, 2015

I recently gave one of my work laptops to an employee to use a a job over the last few weeks, so I deactivated my Windows Live and created a local account.  I for the life of me can not remember the password, I did a little bit of Googling and I keep seeing paid softwares on how to get it fixed.  The unit doesn't require a password to boot up so the device is still usable.
Is there anyway that I can remove, reset, or retrieve the password without a paid software?

Accounts :: Lost Privileges To All Folders And Files?

Dec 22, 2015

Solved Windows 10 says I don't have permission to save anything. - Windows 10 Forums

However I am still running into an issue with Writing into about 50% of the folders in my C:

Two things could have possibly occurred to cause this issue,

1: I signed into my Microsoft account and from there out it wanted me to login to it to log into my PC, so I removed my Microsoft account

2: I shared a file to the OneDrive using the Microsoft account above.

There are multiple folders that the only thing I can do when I right click in it and go to "New" is make a new folder, no other options.

When I right click on the folder and go to Properties, Security tab, and try and change the settings for Users or administrators, I get the following error

An error occurred while applying security informationg to:C:Program Files (x86)TeamViewerConnections_incoming.txtFailed to enumerate objects in the container. Access is denied.

The above error applies to a lot of folders (but not all of them). My User account named Yekim is an administrator and the only account on my computer. I've tried elevating to administrator and changing the folder but it does not work.

So basically what I'm looking to do is to either give access to all files/folders on my computer to the User 'Yekim' or to properly give him administrator. Even though it does say he is already a local administrator it does not seem to apply.

I also did all 3 steps here! Still asks for Password after Screen Saver & Pin after Sleep!

I created a password that I must enter each time I start the computer.

Since this is a Home Computer and only I use it, it's a waste of time.

Accounts :: How Not To Enter Password Wakeup

Dec 9, 2015

Some might say, Windows 10 home can be frustrating. Ok!, When my desktop goes to sleep, I have to enter my password on wakeup. I've searched all over the internet...and that includes and printed out some thirty pages on how it can be done, but, no luck.

I have printed how to Make Windows 10 not require a Password on Wake. I went to Power Options in Control Panel, click the "Require a password on wakeup" on the left-hand side. Clicked on... "Change settings that are currently unavailable" link, then click the "Don't require a password " button, and made I saved it.

After the computer goes to sleep and I need to wake it up, it asks for my password. I've tried this at least dozen times in many different way according to some that post how to do it.

Accounts :: How To Get Rid Of Extra Password Logins

Feb 23, 2016

This is my home computer. I just upgraded to Windows 10 (Home). At my login screen I see all my family's login names (as I should) but I also see 6 logins labeled "Password".

It seems that each "Password" login is associated with an individual user. So if I select one of the "Password" logins it will bring up the login for "Kevin" select a different one and it will up the login for say "Amanda" etc... This is just confusing is there anyway of getting rid of these extra logins?

Accounts :: Admin Password Lockup

Jan 25, 2016

Product Name: P3X7A#ABA
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

see attached

Got this computer on HSN last November didn't open till xmas. In set up thought it was odd I ended up with a sign-on of just using a "pin". Wondered why it didn't take the password I wanted (and have since no recollection of what it was) . Anyway now I realize that it's saved password for the administrator password so when that was needed.

so here I am I keep getting a screen it's telling me wrong password and then having a very frustrating time. needing to get back in the computer so I can fix it as I have a virus .

also just loaded all my important files and data and get his computer and had not gotten to the point of backing up that I was still very much in the initial set up how I wanted things to be .

I am hoping there is a resolved to this without losing everything

Accounts :: Incorrect Password After Changing User?

Mar 5, 2016

I was working on my laptop just fine this morning and when using a specific program noticed it was saving work as a previous user. So I went to accounts and changed the user name to mine. Now when I start the computer and am prompted for password it just says "incorrect password" even though it still shows the "password hint" as the same as it used to be and the user pic is still the old one.

I am freaking out as I have deadlines due today and can't access my computer!
