  1. Admin password recovery


    To be clear about this I have not forgotten my admin sign in password on W10. I had it written down and its correct, yet after waking from Sleep mode my PC wont accept it anymore.

    I have a User Account, but the Admin account is the main one and everythings on it.


    I have tried restarting again and again.

    I have tried rebooting in safe mode and password was still unaccepted.

    I have confirmed keyboard settings are correct Caps lock, number lock etc.

    I have tried account live password reset, but the email it recognises only changes the password to my user account.


    I have seen various solutions involving downloading software, but i cant install anything on my user account without the admin password. lol.


    It is Windows 10 Home edition I believe. so the other options IVe seen cant be applied.


    I am really desperate now and really annoyed, its the correct password and it seems its a familiar bug. Admin password recovery :(

    :)

  3. hdd password recovery

    howdy. if this isnt the right forum please move it.
    a friend has a 3 year old hp or compaq tower. they called me to help. they are not able to get into the admin accound, because the password was changed. it was changed by them when a popup told them for security they should change thier password.
    after it was changed they could no longer get into the admin account with the password they changed it to, and the computer started sending out emails to everyone on her address list with porn and viagara type adds.
    i ran anti virus and we found 20 trogans, virus, ect. everything comes back clean now, but we still cant get into asdmin account to format drive.she doesnt have a vista system disc, just the recovery partition.
    1.. is there a way to get the password?

    2... if not can i install a new hdd and install from her recovery partition?

    3...will i be able to install new hdd and install vist from my disc or is the mb set up to not alow that?

    thanks for any help, they are on a limited budget and are true friends to me and i would like to help them. thanks! sam
