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

    Yes, I want to get rid of the hacker's account.

    The hacker's email account is the administrator account. I set-up a
    new Microsoft email account also as an
    admin under family & friends, but hacker's is still the main admin. Will I be able to use the new admin account I set-up when doing what you suggest? The hacker's admin email has thwarted me from removing his as I don't have his password or phone
    number.

  3. 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

    How to change a Windows 10 user account type and why you might want to

    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.

  4. So a hacker just emailed me

    old email addresses

    Thank you for updating me HA.111

    Here is the step to remove that old email address.

    Start typing an email address into the “To” field. As soon as you see the old email address being recommended as one of the potential candidates, use the down arrow key to scroll through the list of suggestions. Once you highlight the old email address, type the delete key. In many cases, this will actually remove the entry not only from the current list of suggestions but from future suggestions as well. You may even find that as you mouse over the drop-down list the highlighted item will have an “x” to explicitly allow you to delete it.

    Just do this step and your good to go.

    Continue to have an escellent day HA.111
