04 Jul Dr. Jon Cartu Reports – Strangely Locked out of Windows 10 ?
It all started after an update months ago. Right after that my laptop started acting strangely and ever so slowly, things changed.
Then all of sudden my password would not work ?
Did some research on the web and tried the “forgot my password prompt”, nothing happens.
I tried the “Shift+Restart” method, to get into recovery mode options.
That led me to various recovery options. Except, that I never assigned an admin and password. The admin email (outlook) was unavailable to me too.
So, after reading many posts on various sites I downloaded the MS Win 10 repair disk.
I removed the previous Ms Update (according to th repair disk).
I am still experiencing, No luck, In getting win 10 to accept or change my password.
I am Still locked out, with no ability to reset password or go back (sys restore) to last date it worked, too!
Since I no longer have access, I cannot provide a Win 10 Version or Build info. (Sorry)
All I want, is a way to:
A) Fix this
Retrieve my files and move on.
Here’s my backstory,
I’m along time “Bleeping Computer” Lurker (over 10 years) and joined last year.
I was naively happy, with my Sony Viao VGN NR260E with Win Vista HP (internally installed OS) laptop, cruising the web.
That’s when I was sternly informed (on here), that it was not wise to do so. So I took heed of such, Sage advice and downloaded Win 10.
Things were jus fine til around March of 2020. After a few MS updates? Then things slowly eroded down to this point in time !
I welcome any and all help in resolving this matter ! Thx.
