    new upgrade hangs just before asking for password


    I just upgraded my neighbor's computer from 7 to 10. All went well EXCEPT for a small glitch. I set it up without a password and it boots to desktop really fast. Upon her checking it out she wanted me to set up a password to keep her children from logging on to it. I did. The password works OK BUT just before the screen asking for the password the computer hangs at the time/date screen. The screen is a pic of a seascape/beach looking through a rock tunnel. I've seen this screen after a computer wakes up from sleep. It will go on if you tap a key. Does anybody know of a way to bypass/stop this screen from showing. She didn't have it with 7 using a password. I tried msconfig with no GUI boot but it doesn't work. Thanks guys.

    :)

  2. Setting up Cortana

    Just upgraded to 10. Cortana asked for my Microsoft login. Couldn't remember password. Got code to reset password. It accepted the new password but then asked for the old password which I had forgotten once more before proceeding. How can I fix this?

    Windows 10 restore

    I have an ASUS ROG I am currently trying to restore but it's hanging up on the just a moment screen and when I boot in safe mode everything asks for a Windows defaultuser0 account password. This is not a update/upgrade just a normal system restore.

    As far as I know what you are seeing is normal behaviour. If there is a way of bypassing it to go straight to the password screen I'd be interested to know.
