  1. System Restore Will Not Accept Password


    This one has me puzzled and any help will be appreciated. The problem is System Restore does not recognize my Windows password. When I try a System Restore and enter my password, the message says the password is incorrect. It's the same password that I use successfully to logon to Windows. I do not understand why it is not accepted by System Restore when the very same password allows me to logon to Windows. The version of Windows is version 1511 build 10586.873.

    I am hesitant to go to the Creators Update with this problem.

    Thanks

    :)

  3. Password not accepted after system restore

    Recently I upgraded to windows 10 from 7. Once I used Microsoft account and for some reason I was told to use the local account again therefore I moved back to my local account (password). As windows 10 started to get unstable probably due to virus infections,
    I system restored through my administrator local account. After system restore I was rolled back to the stage of Microsoft account. I used the password for Microsoft account but it doesn't work then I tried my old password for local account, this one also
    doesn't work. I have also checked the keyboard layout. I have not forgotten my passwords as I have got a record of the passwords for both accounts. I have also got a user account with password setting that is working fine. I do not get permission to perform
    system restore, install any software through user account. Please help me to log into my administrator account.

    System Restore Will Not Accept Password

    Hi, do you mean you have tried to start System Restore having booted from a boot disk? (rather than having logged in to Windows)? f so, do you recognise the user for which you receive a password prompt?

    Option 1

    If you can log in to Windows, you could start System Restore from there, if you need to.

    Option 2

    It also sounds as if Windows updates hasn't been working or has been turned off for a long time. Could you advise?

    Thanks.

    They would never use a pin for anything other than logging on, I don't even think all pins are unique.
