    My functional microsoft account is attached to an email that no longer existsbusiness, bankruptcy, etc. Do I have to now go rouge hacker and excise windows 10 from my laptop just to avoid this inane and user-hobblingsecurity feature?


    This sign in option is disabled because of failed sign in attempts or repeated shutdowns


    Please read further, especially if you are a MS rep about to pounce on the thread with a tonedeaf response straight out of the manual of how to stonewall a frustrated user and then lock my thread afterwards to stop real users from commenting real helpful suggestions.


    I've already got a dual boot with Kali Linux. I use windows ten primarily to watch movies on DVD and play Jetpack1.5 . I think I can make work arounds for both of those, especially if I've got about five hundred gigabytes ofwasted space currently housing the offending software.


    However, inertia is powerful. I would much rather continue to use the laden, lagging, bugged up architecture of windows ten as I have been. This si the first time I've seen the error message:This sign in option is disabled because of failed sign in attempts or repeated shutdowns.I will not put up with it for long.


    I'd like to recover my account, but that email is long gone and all I remember is the PIN. I'd like to disable this security feature of windows 10, but I'm sure if they are freezing threads and tossing canned responses like grenades that I won't get my answer here.


    Please, ask me some stupid questions, like how I'm posting this if my account is irretrievable? I made a new one, but it still doesn't help me with my current hardward/software conundrum. If you're from Microsoft, please, don't answer, don't lock my thread, just let the professionals handle this one okay?

    :)

  2. Microsoft account Sign in option under user account is not working

    Hi NAvneet.

    Many thanks for your help. But this didn't work.

    Should I try the below procedure. Someone has suggested this method to similar query in other thread. Pls suggest:

    Please follow the steps to enable the build in administrator and check if it helps:

    • Use the power button on the sign-in screen to Shift+Restart. This will take you to the recovery boot menu.
    • Click Troubleshoot, Advanced options, Startup settings. When given the choice of startup options, try booting the PC in
      Safe Mode with Command Prompt. If you can’t get there, skip to the next major step.
      • If you can get to a CMD window, enable the built-in administrator account:

        net user administrator /active:yes
      • Then restart and sign-in as the Administrator account.
      • Once in the Administrator account, open Regedit
        and go to the following key:

        HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL\StoredIdentities
      • Save a backup of the key: Export the StoredIdentities key to a .REG file on the desktop.
      • Then continue with step 4 below.
    • Use boot media to access the recovery command prompt.
      • Start Regedit.
      • Select the HKEY_USERS key.
      • Click File, Load Hive. and go up in the file system to This PC. Then browse to this file and then click Open:

        C:\Windows\System32\config\DEFAULT
      • When prompted, name it “def”
      • Select this key:

        HKEY_USERS\def\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL\StoredIdentities
      • Save a backup of the key: Export the StoredIdentities key to a .REG file on the C:\ drive.
    • Find the subkey under StoredIdentities that matches the name of the Microsoft Account.
    • Delete the key.
    • If you loaded the offline registry hive, go back up in the tree on the left and select “def”. Then click File,
      Unload hive. This option will only be available if “def” is selected.
    • Restart the PC and test sign-in.
    • Once done, you may need to Verify the account in Settings, Accounts in order for it to be fully usable in Windows again.
    • If you used the built-in Administrator account to resolve the issue, please return it to the default disabled state to help keep the Computer secure. To do so follow the steps:
      net user administrator /active:no
    Please create a new administrator account using the Microsoft Account and check.
