Reopen Windows account

Question: Reopen Windows account

Given the serious nature of some questions here, mine seems silly. Yesterday I received and opened up new laptop with Windows 8. New experience for me. Without realizing what it was, I set up and then closed my
Windows account. I realize now I need to keep it open. Can you tell me how to reopen the account?
Thanks, Markfm3213

Preferred Solution: Reopen Windows account

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Reopen Windows account

Hello Mark, and welcome to Eight Forums.

If you meant that you "closed" your Microsoft account as in to deactivate it like in the tutorial below, then no worries. You can reactivate your Microsoft account by signing in it again online at Microsoft within 365 days of closing it.

Microsoft Account - Close




Hope this helps,

My account with bing rewards was closed recently and yes i did not adhere to the rules. Is there any way to reopen it

Answer:Is there a way to reopen the bing rewards account after its being closed by the bing team?

Probably not, but you'd need to ask Microsoft. Windows Central is a fan site, with no affiliation to Microsoft.

In a situation where I have a grouped set of windows (Chrome, Skype, EtC.) and have to minimize any of them, it's a hassle to open them again. I can get windows to open the previews by clicking on the group, but anything within the previews won't work. Right click closes previews. Left click closes previews.
Mind you, I can still get to them. Alt+Tab works, as does Super+Tab. It's just annoying to always have to go that way, especially as I'm using two monitors and have my taskbar on the one that makes it less obtrusive.
I can temporarily fix the problem by restarting, but it takes forever, and I just simple don't like having to restart. I will every once in a while, but again, it doesn't fix the problem. It just delays it.
 
The only potential cause I can figure out is when I do have to close chrome, I tend to do it by ending the task. This ensures I can recover my tabs that I had open. I don't know if this is the cause, but it's the only thing that seems potentially related, simply due to it being done in relative close proximity to the problem showing up.
 
I've tried restarting the desktop management system (DWM), changing themes, disabling and reenabling grouping. Nothing is fixing it.
 
Again, I can get by without it... it's just a major annoyance, and a block to productivity.
 
Also, if it's a single window, clicking on the task bar icon opens the windows. Once it's a group, then I'm screwed.

hi does anyone have a solution to windows live mail refusing to reopen after being closed by clicking on the red x that method does not close the program it is still running in the task manager, and the only way to start is to go to the task manager and close it.any solution folks, i found that if you close it from the icon on the task bar

Answer:Windows live mail wont reopen a second tine

*Taken from click here It generally occurs when the send option "Upload Larger Images to the Web When Sending a Photo E-mail" is *un-checked*, but it does not usually manifest until a new compose window, or a saved draft has been opened.This option is available only when you are signed in, but if it is un-checked it still causes the shutdown bug even when not signed in. So make sure the option "Upload Larger Images to the Web When Sending a Photo E-mail" is *checked* at: Tools->Options->Send [tab] (available only when signed into Windows Live through WLMail).However, if you do find that "Upload Larger Images to the Web When Sending a Photo E-mail" is actually checked (which it is by default), then just uncheck it and click "Apply", then check it again and click "Apply" again. Some have had to do that to fix their WLMail shut down bug that was occurring despite that option having never been unchecked.

Windows 10 has a cache issue when saving/reopening files which I can repeat and would appreciate some advice/ideas

Note: I have come here after weeks of problems and series of tests. I have ruled out antivirus, drivers, hardware and a host of other issues raised my Microsoft and can repeat this problem with out fail.

I have had two identical computers (A and B) built for me by a reputable store. Both run Windows 10 with a genuine COA on each system. I use one system at home and one at work. I have a portable drive that contains my data that is shared/used by both systems. I have bought seven drives to date out of shear frustration thinking it was hardware - 2Tb, 3Tb, and 4Tb from Seagate, Toshiba and WD - they all do this:

Hello,

I clicked the X when it asked if it should load previous session and all my IE8 tabs I had open before the crash was lost.
When I open up IE they doesn't reopen. I've tried "reopen last session" from the Tools menu but with no luck.

Seems like they still are stored in AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Recovery\Active (.dat files) but how do I make IE to open them?

Answer:Reopen lost tabs in IE8

There was a change from IE7 to IE8. Now when you reopen IE, you have to reopen the tabs from your "Favorites" bar. Another good reason to switch to FF.

I am using Windows 8 with IE10 and for some weird and wonderful reason, the "reopen last session" is greyed out. I saw on the Windows 7 forum that there was a download fix for that but didn't dare to take that on for Windows 8.
Any ideas as to a simple fix for this snag?

Answer:Reopen last session greyed out

Hello Gloosecap,

The Reopen Last Browsing Session option would only not be grayed out if there was an actual last session to reopen. If you cleared your browser history after closing IE10, then there will be nothing to reopen.

If that wasn't the case, then you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to enable Reopen Last Browsing Session in IE10 to see if that may help.

Hello,
I have an excel 2000 file (size: 12.5MB). The file is stored on a NT file server. The server is connected on a switch (A). The client PC that tried to access the file is on a BNC cable connection that connects to a 10Mbps hub and this hub connects to another 10Mbps hub and this hub goes to the switch (A). The problem happened when the user tried to update the Excel file. He opened it from the server. He made some modifications to the data and then he pressed the saved button. Excel 2000 begun saving (file.xls) and finally the following error message appeared on screen: "DOCUMENT SAVED SUCESSFULLY. CAN NOT REOPEN THE SAVED DOCUMENT DUE TO LOW MEMORY. PLEASE CLOSE THE DOCUMENT". If I press OK button then the document will be damaged and will not be opened again, so I tried to save it again. I pressed the save option but instead of saving it, I noticed that the SAVE AS dialog box appeared. I thought that something wrong is going on. I saved the Excel file on the SERVER using another filename (file2.xls). The saving process was successful. I closed Excel 2000 and I loaded again.

Can anybody get me in contact with Acer? I want to reopen my support case because my laptop is starting to die again, even after they "fixed" it.
 
Because my warranty is supposedly a week out of date I am unable to get in contact with a single person from Acer to tell them to reopen [edited for privacy] because their support clearly did not solve the problem. I am experiencing the exact same problem that led to my needing to send in my laptop. It is worsening and probably going to lead to a huge nasty crash again.
 
And I have reason to believe that the cause is bad hardware that my Acer Aspire Nitro was shipped with, because THIS time, when I saw the BSODs, I looked them up. I've been receiving a "Kernel Data Inpage Error" which apparently means that my memory or my hard drive is faulty. (And yes, I did the recommended things on that page. Nothing has helped or identified a problem. At all.)
 
This issue SHOULD be covered under warranty, not only because it is an issue that started during the year of warranty, but ALSO because Acer claimed to have fixed the issue but DID NOT, and ALSO because their warranty clearly states "Acer warrants that its Products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the Limited Warranty Period" and my computer CLEARLY CAME WITH FAULTY HARDWARE.

Answer:I need to reopen an issue with acer

Hi lsilich04,
 
We have to have some date for the warranty to end, but we certainly aren't interested in leaving you out in the cold less than a week out. I was able to locate your information and the US service team updated the warranty through the end of the month. This will allow you to contact and setup services as needed.
 
In reading your post, I would have to disagree that a kernel error means a hardware error. The Kernel is part of the core of the Windows operating system and is completely software, when that crashes, it would result in the bluescreens and lockups. When your unit was in originally, I show that memory tests and hard drive tests were done, and a reload of the operating system corrected the issue. Now, after 3 months, you're starting to experience blue screens again, and I would suspect that some corruption has occured in the operating system. With all of this said, I would suggest attempting a recovery first, see how the system behaves. If there was a hardware error, it would also fail during the recovery process.

I'm running Windows Vista on a Dell XPS410. When I close Internet Explorer or Microsoft Outlook, I often (but not always) get a message "Internet Explorer (or Microsoft Outlook) has stopped working" and then the program will reopen by itself. As Outlook reopens, I get a message that it was not closed properly and it's checking for errors, and lately I'm also asked if I want to reopen in Safe Mode. Occasionally I'll get a message that IE has stopped working even when I don't close it myself, and all pages will close.

Not sure if this is a related problem or not, but occasionally I have emails that stay in the outbox even after sending (and stay open on the monitor after I hit "send"), but they also show up in the Sent box, so it's difficult to know if they actually were sent. I believe (but I'm not sure) that it's only happening when they have multiple photos attached, so they are large emails and I'm sending them on a 28.8k dialup modem, if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any help!

I just wrote a long post and it disappeared while trying to run that spell check on it. Very annoying.

Here, again, is my problem:

When I close IE 8 or 9 with several tabs open, and later reopen it, the option to reopen or restore the last browsing session is ALWAYS grayed out in both the menu under Tools and on the New Tab pages.

I had a nasty rootkit infection of volsnap.sys that was mostly affecting IE, which was detected and removed by ComboFix with help from MajorGeeks, just a week or two ago.

Since it was always changing the mischief it did, mostly regarding IE, I suspect that "part of it" is still on my machine.

A MS support forum led me through several steps to try to fix this, including uninstalling and reinstalling IE 9. Then they gave up and said I had to reformat my HD and reinstall my OS. I suspect that wouldn't be enough...

I really depend on this function, and have used IE for many, many years, and don't want to switch browsers. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,
Barb

Hi- I will be very happy if someone can help me olve this mystery-

I'm using windows ME and IE 6.0- when i try to save a jpeg- the only file type that i can save it as- is a bitmap. If I try to open this "bitmap" that I have save to my disk- i get the "download file" dialog box that tells me that I am trying to download the file from my own hard drive- there is no way for me to open the file. Any ideas, anyone?

Thank You!
 

Answer:IE saves all pics as bitmaps and won't let me reopen them

Can't really help you out much.
But there is a way to save in other formats.
In the name box add the image type to the name.

Like this Mypicture.jpg.
On the box that says file type it does not matter what it says when you add the file type to the name.

Now I have 1000's of .jpg files and only 6 .jpeg files. Some image programs will not open the .jpeg so don't use it. Use the .jpg.

Where are you getting these images from?
Are you sure you saved them as a image file or did you save the link to the images?

Running the page as a user, Every time the user access the page after logging on IE hangs and then will put a red cross in the ActiveX section of the page. If you then close and reopen IE it will then allow the ActiveX element of the page to work fine. The

Hello,

I am in need of some assistance with my IE 10 browser, but the problem only happens while using the default MSN homepage.

After closing the web browser a number of times while on MSN, multiple browsers will suddenly reopen. I have noticed that when the browsers reopen, the url is a little different from the original. Here is an example of what some of the urls might look like below.

MSN.com

But when I change my default homepage to another search engine, such as google, yahoo, or bing, this problem does not occur. It only happens on the msn website.

Just today, I have discovered what is causing the browser to do this and it is the TrueSuiteService application that is part of the HP Simplepass program that is already pre-installed on my laptop. When disabled, the problem no longer occurs. However; when it is enabled, the problem will reoccur after a certain amount of times opening and closing the browser.

Here is a screenshot of the application disabled below.



But, here are two screenshots of all the applications that are enable on startup.





Either way, I am unsure of which direction I should take to solve this matter completely. Please help me.

Thank you for your assistance.

However, it still boggles my mind that how come it would be this application causing this issue? Also I notice that all the HP products are labeled "Hewlett-Packard Company" in the manufacturer status however; the disabled application is only labeled "HP" as the manufacturer? Could this possibly be a hidden virus on my computer? If so, how do I remove it? end of Quote

I've upgraded to Windows 10 and so far so good. I'm not sure if this is a question for W10 or for the Edge browser...? When opening the browser, I used to be able to see the Top Sites visited, and reopen closed tabs, sometimes even the previous session, and also sites visited on my Windows Phone. Now, I only get 'Top sites' and the MSN news feed. So far I can only find settings to set to open new tabs to Top Sites or a blank page. I'd prefer to be able to easily find recently closed tabs rather than searching through history. And being able to see and open sites from Windows Phone was nice, why is that no longer available?

I'm running Word 2000 under XP Home. Every time I retrieve a document from a folder or the Recently Used folder, I have to click on the page even if I do not want to alter the document in any way. Failure to remember to do this results in Word freezing and I have to close the programme through the Task Manager. Any solutions out there?

Hello,
I have an excel 2000 file (size: 12.5MB). The file is stored on a NT file server. The server is connected on a switch (A). The client PC that tried to access the file is on a BNC cable connection that connects to a 10Mbps hub and this hub connects to another 10Mbps hub and this hub goes to the switch (A). The problem happened when the user tried to update the Excel file. He opened it from the server. He made some modifications to the data and then he pressed the saved button. Excel 2000 begun saving (file.xls) and finally the following error message appeared on screen: "DOCUMENT SAVED SUCESSFULLY. CAN NOT REOPEN THE SAVED DOCUMENT DUE TO LOW MEMORY. PLEASE CLOSE THE DOCUMENT". If I press OK button then the document will be damaged and will not be opened again, so I tried to save it again. I pressed the save option but instead of saving it, I noticed that the SAVE AS dialog box appeared. I thought that something wrong is going on. I saved the Excel file on the SERVER using another filename (file2.xls). The saving process was successful. I closed Excel 2000 and I loaded again. I tried to open the Excel file (file.xls) but the opening failed with the following error message: "FILE file.xls is not in recognizable form ". After that I tried to open the file2.xls and I SUCCEEDED IN OPENING IT WITHOUT PROBLEMS.

I have a Dell LatitudeD400 with Windows XP. Whenever I close my laptop to do something for a short time (with it still being on)- and reopen it- is flashes a blue screen for short time (short enough that I cant see what it says) - and then it restarts. The computer works fine and it has been doing this since I got it two years ago.

If I go to Standby manually, by going to start->shut down computer->standby it works fine. I just have to leave the lid open the whole time and when I press the power button, type my password, and all is well. No idea what is going on...

Answer:[SOLVED] Laptop restarts (bluescreen) when I reopen it

Hi
Download and run this application: BSOD_XP_v1.3_jcgriff2_PROD.exe.
Once it has finished running zip the folder TSF_XP_Support which can be found in your Documents folder.
Attach the zipped file to your next post.

Hi,
i often find myself closing a web page, then a little later that same session reopening it. Then, as i mainly rely on tethering my phone to my PC for internet, and have only a 2 GB data plan (which is all i can afford), i get concerned about whether each re-opening of a same page doubles its data consumption. (I searched the internet for any answers but could not find any. And the whole world of internet logistics is hopelessly baffling for me to attempt, though i spend countless hours trying!))

Thanks so much for any answers!

When I open edge after a reboot I can use the menus and scroll. When I load YouTube I can see the videos and scroll but cant open any of them I have to close edge and reopen it to fix the problem.

I made a reset, deleted edge and reinstalled, used ccleaner but the issue is not resolved.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have Windows 8.1 using IE11 and I am unable to reopen browsing history. It is always gray shaded. It doesn't matter how I close it or if I reboot. If I close IE and reboot, it's gray shaded. If I don't close every tab - just leave them all open and close IE - then open IE again without restarting, it is gray shaded.

I seen some other posts about this that aren't quite the same problem (and/or haven't been resolved) and someone mentioned that it's gray shaded because there is no browsing history to reopen. Trust me, there is. I don't delete my browsing history after each session. Besides, everything is in my history folder - my browsing history is just fine. I just can't reopen previous sessions.

I have not been able to find help anywhere so I thought I'd finally ask.

I just downloaded internet explorer 9. Previously, I was using IE8. Every day, when ie8 would open up (it would load automatically at startup from AOL IM), I would go to Tools -> Reopen last browsing session, and all the tabs and pages I had open when I closed my previous session would load (though in reverse order left to right, annoyingly).

Now that I'm running IE9, when I go to Tools -> Reopen last browsing session, the option is greyed out - it does not work. The only time it works is if I close IE9 and then reopen the browser without rebooting. If I reboot, which I do every day, the option is not available like it used to be in IE8. (Seems like every time I download an updated version of anything anymore, something inevitably stops working or is worse than it was before - this soooo tiresome.)

I've tried a regedit I found somewhere on these forums - setting for 'turn off reopen last browsing session' to 'disable'. Didn't work.

I do not have IE9 set to delete my browsing history on exit.

I have the box checked for Automatically recover from page layout errors with compatibility view.

So, currently I'm out of ideas - can't find anything else.

I would really appreciate it if anyone who knows what is going on with this could share.

Answer:IE9 Reopen Last Browsing Session option is not working

So does anyone else have this problem? Since the Reopen Last Browsing Session is kind of a deal breaker, I would have thought that there'd be a fix by now. But maybe the fix is to uninstall IE9 afterall. So much for IE9. Firefox and Chrome do this anyway, correctly, even WITHOUT having to select an option. I'd skip IE altogether if I didn't need it for work.

Hey everyone,

I'm a college kid who has been having major issues with my laptop, I'm desperate for some help.

The problems:
My Wifi cuts out at random, and after that my laptop won't reconnect- or connect to any wifi- until I either close the lid, wait for the green light to go off, then reopen, or I restart. This always temporarily fixes the problem. (This actually happened when I first tried to submit this post, so I have to retype the whole thing . This happens within anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours from when I reconnect to wifi, and it seems to be somewhat correlated to me opening new tabs (or submitting a new post ). I don't use my laptop for anything other than casual browsing and school work, so I don't have any weird programs that might cause this. No single event started this, but it's been happening for months. I'd really appreciate any help.

Answer:The User Profile (Administrator Account) Service failed to logon and then left with only Guest Account in Windows 7

Hi,

Occasionally, Windows might not read your user profile correctly, such as if your antivirus software is scanning your computer while you try to log on.
Please try restarting your computer and logging on with your user account again.

If the issue still persists, please restart in safe mode to log on with the built-in administrator account:
1. Restart your computer and hit F8 multiples times until you see a menu-like screen, if you see the Windows splash screen then repeat this step
2. Highlight and hit enter on Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Try logging in there.
3. If you are able to login, once a command prompt pops up, type: net user administrator password /active:yes (you can specify whatever password you want for the administrator
account.)
4. If you get a message saying "The command completed successfully", then restart your computer by typing: shutdown -r

Hello everybody,

I have realized that all the laptops I installed Windows 10 in the last year (several family laptops) are running with Microsoft-Accounts which are Admin-Accounts. Now I read that this is a serious security issue. I would like to change these MS-Admin-Accounts into MS-Limited-User-Accounts?

But how?

And next question: Should I set up for every laptop then a local admin-account?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Answer:Windows 10: How change account from admin into limited user account?

As long as you have not disabled UAC, User Account Control, or invoked the hidden full administrator, then your users are actually running as standard users and will be prompted before performing any Admin level tasks - you can if you wish create a standard user on each of the systems in addition to the administrator, but this will not provide much better security and is likely to generate complaints from the users as they will have to set-up the accounts again to how they want them.

We have a new dell business computer (don't have model with me now, but its an optiplex with serial and ps2 ports in the back, purchased a few months ago with i5 processor + 8 gigs ram) and our hard drive went bad and dell replaced it. Then a little later we had an issue with our windows genuine activation saying its not genuine when we had windows 7 and it blocked the admin account on the sign in screen (only account). Meaning you can't do anything, there are no other options, no option to enter key code or make genuine or anything like that. 
So I reinstalled Windows 7 (Dell CD) + downloaded drivers (except sata drivers which it didn't show it needed in device manager and I was pushed to finish quickly) from dell  today, thought all was well. It showed genuine and activated, etc... 
Employee upgraded to windows 10. Guess what? The login screen when you turn on the computer has once again blocked the admin account which is the only account. What is going on and how do I fix it? This is ridiculous. I can't even login to try to fix it.

edit: forgot to mention that this computer was added to a domain at work, not sure if that makes a difference or not

Hi, I basically had 3 accounts on my computer, one being "Administrator" (w Admin rights), one "test" (Standard User rights) and one more "User" that is the one I use most frequently (with Admin rights). When I last used it last Friday the User account was still present and all my programs were working fine.

However, when I came back to office today, I found that the User account was missing from the welcome screen, and only the "Administrator" and "test" account were there. Somehow, I could not login to the "Administrator" account. When I logged into the "test" account, all the program shortcuts were blank (Firefox, Adobe Reader Etc) and only IE and the default windows programs would work. I suspected that there might be a virus, but I couldn't install anything because I did not have the admin priviledges.

My question is:

1. How do I get back into my admin account?
2. is there any way to install anti-virus programs (by going around the admin account) to help solve this issue?

In a nutshell, I'm basically stuck with a standard user account and I can't do anything with it. Any help would really be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

*Just to add, I tried using System Restore on the Standard account, but when I click "Open System Restore" nothing happens.

Answer:Windows 7 admin account is locked, on;y stuck with a standard account.

First off if you actually named your accounts Administrator and User then that may be part of your problem (Maybe not with the account named User but certainly with the one named Administrator).

Windows already has a built in account named Administrator, even though it is normally disabled by default. Creating a NAMED account using the name Administrator is not a good Idea.

Start by booting into Safe Mode and see if the system boots to the built in, but normally disable, Administrator account. If it does create New Admin rights NAMED account, using some other name then Administrator. From that boot normally and log into that new account and see if you can access your files from the other accounts. You may need to take ownership of those other accounts.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

Hello.

Since I bought this computer, I've had issues. I started by creating a user with my personal email address, but then thought I wanted it for work so I deleted the Microsoft account associated with that email and created another with my work email. However, I've noticed that some of the apps aren't working correctly and needed to use my personal email again. For awhile, Microsoft accounts wouldn't allow deleted accounts from coming back but it appears it's working now.
So, now I have a Microsoft account with my personal email address but the primary user on my PC is still associated with the work Microsoft account. I can't find a way to change this and it's causing problems since that email doesn't exist anymore. Is there any way to change the Microsoft account that's associated with a single user?
The only other thing I could think of would be to create a new user, promote to admin, and swap everything over manually before completely removing the user associated with my old work email. I tried this, but when attempting to log into the new user it says "cannot login, please visit accounts.live.com to fix the issue". However, whenever I go there and log into the new users account, there's no instruction on what to do or any indication that there's something wrong.
So, I need to be able to do one of two things:
1) Switch the Microsoft account associated with the primary user on this PC or,
2) Find out how to log into the new user's account without any i... Read more

Answer:Windows 10 Microsoft Account replaced the local account

Hi Winexe,

If you don?t know the password you assigned to it, that Microsoft Account will forever hold your local account locked.

Luckily, your dual boot setup can save you here. You might not be able to login to your account again but you can recover your files and settings easily enough by activating the builtin Administrator account on the Windows 10 portion and using that account to access your files and delete the secured Microsoft Account.

Boot into Windows 7.Locate and delete ?\Windows\System32\sethc.exe? on the Windows 10 file system.Make a copy of ?\Windows\System32\cmd.exe? (on the Windows 10 file system) and rename it to ?sethc.exe?.Boot into Windows 10.On the user logon screen, press the shift key 5 times in succession. A Command Prompt should open on the logon screen.Enter net user Administrator /active into this Command Prompt.Reboot and at the login screen the Administrator account will become available.
You can now use this Administrator account to recover your files under ?C:\Users?.

I am setting up my own small network that include the following configuration :

My question is :

Is there an easier way have the existing local account converted to active directory account.

Objective :

I want to be able to have the current user of the pc sign-on to an active directory account and be able to have all the access to the existing applications, email(outlook express), bookmarks etc. which have been there in the local pc before the active dierctory upgrade.

I found that once I log in the local pc to the active directory domain, everything start fresh. The "my document" is empty. Cant see all the setting/folders which have been set up before the conversion to active directory.

Appreciate any suggestion.

I tried to see Skype Video on Windows 10. Huge mistake.
It asked me for a Windows Account. (I just finished understanding what Google Account means).
I happened to have a Windows Account. I entered it and it accepted it.
It then asked that I must also change the password that I use for my profile on my desktop.
I obliged and sacrificed my simple password as it required a strong password.
So now I have a Windows password and my strong user profile password.
I rebooted. Big headache for the past two hours.
Neither passwords worked to let me in my profile (which has Administrator privilege).
I logged in as Administrator, went to Control Panel, Users accounts, hoping that being logged in as Local Admin, I can change the password of my profile. I can see my profile user account, but there is no way to change its password, only to delete or change to ordinary user.
I changed my Windows account password via my mobile.
Still, I can't log in to my profile.
Would somebody kindly help? or should I just dump Windows 10 and move on to Mac?

Hi, for a neighbour up the road, there son is seriously ill and in recovery (brain damage). He has a tablet running Windows 8 or 8.1 with a Microsoft account which sadly none of them know the password. They wish to access the tablet in the hope of showing him pictures to aid in recovery.

Normally if it was a PC I would quiet happily transfer all of the data off using a caddy or USB CD rom/ boot disk but this doesn't seem possible at the moment.

Is there a way to access the user account, or downgrade back to a local without actually logging in? netplwiz?

Possible chance of doing a forget password if the account is linked to his mobile.

Thanks, James

I would try this route first. You will find out right away if the account is linked. Also there is less chance of scrambling something on the machine. Once you can log in then it is trivial if you want to switch to a non MS account. If online doesn't seem to handle it try calling customer service for Outlook. They must have a record of the IP for the device and you should be able to come up with some method of verifying identity so they can clear the password for you.

Recently when I loaded the program it would turn on then shut down and I get this message "A Problem with this webpage caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab." I have no control over the page, it keeps opening and closing. The only to stop it s to go to Task Manager and end the program several times.
Any Suggestions on a fix for this problem. It does not matter which page it tries to open. I can only change pages by going the Change Home Page inthe control Panel when IE 11 is not running.

Answer:A Problem with this webpage caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab

Open Internet Explorer in Safe Mode without Addons. Browse some sites. If you find that you do not now face any problems, it means that one of your IE add-ons is creating a problem.
Use the IE Addon manager to disable the add-ons one after the other and try to find the offender. To manage browser add-ons in Internet Explorer, open IE and press Alt+X to open Tools. Here you will see Manage add-ons. Click on it Once you have identified it disable ot remove the addon. Details - Manage Browser add ons..
Run AdwCleaner to see if you have any malicious add-ons installed.
If nothing workw, you may need to Reset Internet Explorer settings to default.

I did a Windows 7 Repair Install on my HP (G62) laptop, 64 BIT, and installed an HP Deskjet F4180 printer, it went on virtual USB001. Recently, when printing from various PDF files, I cannot print multiple pages of a document. It prints a single random page of the document, then gives printer error, and moves the document into queue, where I have to cancel the job. It seems to work OK in other application documents however. And it even seemed to work for an older small PDF file.

Im running the laptop on wireless, with router configured to automatic DHCP, shows 2 devices, the laptop and the wired Desktop, and seems to be running fine. The network is set to Public.

I uninstalled all HP programs, drivers, and reinstalled the latest full printer driver & software for 64 BIT from HP website.

I stopped & restarted the print spooler service.

I tried different USB ports, cables, connection steps.

I tried HP scan utilities for fixing, and tried Windows Troubleshoot (which temporarily fixes issue for a single print job)

Thru printers & devices all printer & USB drivers show up, are updated, & working.

OK, I've been sitting on a Win 8 Pro upgrade since last year when I bought the ridiculously cheap upgrade for future use. I installed Windows 8 Pro last week to upgrade my Win 7 machine. Some things are different, and take getting used to, but, overall, I am enjoying what it brings. However, after an automated upgrade the other day, I came to my PC with a need to login in. I noticed that it wants to login into my Microsoft account (which is fine for the Outlook.com email and the apps via the app store), but it no longer has a PC account for which I have, and need, a different password. I now have to login to my home server and resave my credentials.
Too me, this is a problem. Apparently, from what I have seen (PLEASE...if there is a way around this...let me know!) this is to facilitate the logging in to the app store. This is absurd. I have a separate password for my Microsoft account for a reason. If someone in my family needs to login to my PC, which I have generally allowed on my account (for simplicity sake), I have to fork over a password that I do not want to share. I don't understand why MS can't simply disable app store, outlook email, and restricted app access to the PC until a separate login occurs for those.
Anyone with any insight into why this is and if this is the same in 8.1, including any workarounds, would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to create another account on my PC, and then manage it, just to keep my passwords separate like this. I... Read more

Excel 2010 SUM Formula updates, save file and reopen - values revert to old yet SUM totals are new

Hi guys
We have a very strange problem, our user opened his .xls document (97-2003 format) yesterday and updated several values, copied formula and updated (eg monthly/weekly totals). The worksheet includes many small SUM's spanning a couple of cells with sub-totals. He then saved his work and shut down as usual.
When opening the .xls document this morning, to continue his work, he noticed some of the values had changed (we assume to the previous ones) yet the totals where still the updated 'saved' values. Changing any values causes Excel to recalculate the totals (which then become correct, yet old totals)
Yesterday I updated the computer from a Windows XP (SP3), Office XP (SP3) to a Windows 7 (32bit, SP1), Office 2010 (SP1).
We've advised him to change document types to the new .xlsx format and to doublecheck everything.

Any ideas to the actual cause? Thanks
