  1. Cannot interrupt windows boot to enter safe mode


    I'm at a complete loss.


    I offered to help a friend unlock their Windows Tablet since they forgot all passwords. The only account available is the non-elevated administrator local account. After multiple failed attempts I had to reset the PC but upon finishing boot up it auto logs in to the administrator account and loads to the black desktop with the "Unable to access Desktop" error. Only Windows+ R responds. All attempts to access the config folder result in "access denied". Same for attempts through the cmd prompt.


    To top it all off the tablet won't go into recovery mode when interrupting the windows boot sequence so I can't even get it to go into Safe Mode. Any ideas on how to break this loop?


    Thank you

    :)

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10  


    I am stuck in Safe Mode in spite of following all the suggested steps to go back to Normal Startup - Like opening file location of msconfig.exe & running as Administrator. The computer I am trying to get out of safe mode has just been updated from Windows 7.
