  1. Settings Accounts - Email + accounts / Sync your settings not opening


    Hello

    Got a strange one with Windows 10 settings. If I attempt to go into Accounts then Email and Accounts, all I get a is a blank page. At the top you can see it is trying to refresh the info. Likewise, if I click Sync your settings, again I get a blank page. If I then try and click another setting screen, it sits there for a while before jumping out.

    Also if I try and click my account pciture from within Microsoft Store, and then click my name, no account comes up to log off or view. I should get the option.

    I have searched the net for answers but cannot really find with the same issue.

    Anyone seen this happen before or have an answer?

    Version 1809

    Thanks. Martin.

    :)

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    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. Settings Accounts - Email + accounts / Sync your settings not opening

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hi guys

    I have same issue in safe boot mode with networking!

    First of all it blocks the networking

    Then states:

    Settings cant be opened using the built in administrator account sign in with different account and try again.


    Yet clicking on windows i opens settings fine


    It also states broadband blocked, yet I can happily get on the net but at first I couldn't.

    When I asked about it the guy from Microsoft tech answers couldn't understand why I wanted to use safe boot mode with networking????????

    After he did nothing to help but emailed some scripts which didn't refer to safe mode. I rebooted and suddenly safe mode with networking worked with the net but windows 10 still claims broadband is blocked!

    Im also still getting the message on trying to unblock broadband:

    cant be opened using the built in administrator account sign in with different account and try again.

    What is going on there?
