  2. Admin email replaced with hackers email. How can I point admin role to new email?

    1. You must be the Administrator on the computer to run the commands I listed earlier.

    2. Change Admin Account in Settings

    Have to change a user account type? Here's how on Windows 10.

    3. There are utilities (free) that can locate passwords on the device. These are from NirSoft.

    EncryptedRegView,

    CredentialsFileView
    , and
    VaultPasswordView


    EncryptedRegView will decrypt passwords found in Windows Registry

    4. As Greg said, go to every site you do business with and change your passwords to secure your accounts.

    5. If nothing works, Perform a clean install of Windows 10 which will wipe account information out on the system.

    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.

  4. changing my admin from an old email to a new email

    New emails link to old emails and they all show in the inbox

    Hi Carlson,

    Thank you for being part of Windows 10.

    Before we proceed, I need more information to help you better.

    • How many user account you have configured in the Windows Mail app?
    • What do you mean by “New emails link to old emails”?
    If you have configured more than one user account in the Windows Mail app then, I would suggest you to switch the user accounts and check the emails in the inbox.

    Follow the below steps to switch the user accounts in the Windows Mail app:

    • Open the Mail app.
    • Under the Accounts select one user account and check the
      Inbox
      under Folders.
    If the issue still persist then, I would recommend you to delete and reconfigure the account.

    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.

    Thank you.
