  1. New computer setup


    My husband bought a new computer last week and set it up following all direction prompts. He was able to sign in and use the computer that evening. Since then it will not accept his login pin #, To reset that, he needed to sign into his Outlook account. It won't accept his login info to Outlook to change his computer login pin #. We've requested a new Outlook password, he was sent a code via his phone, but will not accept the code. We both have tried it and it will not accept it. One time he was able to get in to change his login pin# but again it will

    Modern setup host

    Hi Hermie,



    Regarding your concern with the deleted Modern Setup Host file, we’d like to ask the following questions so we can isolate it at the same time:



    • What particular action that you’re trying to perform at the time that it was accidentally deleted.?
    • May we know where and how it was deleted on your computer?
    • Were you able to check if the deleted file can be found in the
      Recycle bin?

    As an initial step, we suggest that perform a DISM command. This will help repairing possible system file corruptions. Follow these steps:

    • Type command in the search box.
    • Right-click on the result and select Run as administrator.
    • Type this command: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • Press Enter.
    • Close the Command Prompt windows and check if changes were made related to the Modern Setup Host file.

    We'll wait for your update after trying the steps.

  3. Unable to setup Homegroup on Windows 10 computer

    Hello Mike,

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • Did you try setting up HomeGroup on another computer?
    • Is your computer installed with any third party Antivirus or Online security software?
    Suggest you to check this issue by restarting your computer once, post complete shutdown, to see if it goes correctly. Also ensure that your computer is up to date with Windows Updates.
    Go to Start Button/>Settings/>Update & Security/> Windows Update and click
    Check the updates. If you find any pending updates, then try to install them and see if it makes any difference.

    Follow the below mentioned steps to setup HomeGroup on Windows 10.


    • Right-click on Start and select
      Control Panel from the context menu.

    • Select
      Network and Sharing
      center option, then click on the
      HomeGroup
      at the bottom left fringe on the Network and Sharing Center window.

    • Click
      Create a homegroup
      button. You see the list of files and devices that you would like to share within the HomeGroup.

    • On the drop down menu beside every item set the
      level of permission of each item, then click Next once you are done.

    • You will be taken to the next step where you can see an
      auto-generated password. If the computer need to participate in the HomeGroup then they require this password for authentication. You can also modify the password later. Tap the
      Finish button.
    Now join other PC into this HomeGroup, which you think should participate in the HomeGroup activities.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.
