  1. unable to perform a restore - password issue


    I had errors present after I booted.

    I performed a reset from previous restore point.

    Computer failed to reboot.

    Will not let me reset the computer without password.

    Previous password forgotten

    Changed the password in Microsoft online from another computer

    Don't remember the previous password and the new password will not work either.


    What Now?

  3. Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
