    User-ID/Password problems


    On my home Wifi net, I have had my HP desktop, a Dell Venue pad and a Samsung TV. All co-existed quite well for years. Around April this year, I resuscitated my deceased wife's HP laptop, giving a new battery. All 3 computers run Windows 10. Since the May-June Windows updates, the following has happened: the HP desktop was unable to restart after an update, requiring me to have a local repair shop to install a complete ground-up version of Windows 10. During this time period, the HP laptop and the Dell pad also became more aware of the Wifi network. Unusual events were seen, such as: wallpaper on the HP laptop disappeared, but is now installed on both displays of the HP Desktop. Currently, there seems to be great confusion about MS passwords. For several days, after several resets, I have not been able to establish a password on the Dell pad; reset passwords are usually rejected, so I have unable to use this device. I am writing this on the HP desktop, after having logged-in using a password defined yesterday as a reset password for the Hp laptop. It appears I am reaching a user-name/password condition where all three computers are unusable. Realistically, I would like to have all 3 computers recognize my email address as user-name, and I definitely don't wnat them swapping passwords among themselves! Need Help!User-na

    You need a local user account if you need to use PC,For that you need to create super admin account.

    • It will boot into safe mode.

    • On that,click on troubleshoot->advanced-> Command Prompt.

    type the following command in command prompt.

    net user Administrator /active:yes ( leave one Space after Administrator.)

    Hit Enter.

    You Will get a confirmation message stating Command Completed successfully.

    Now,Restart your PC again and click on new admin account that displays ( which doesn't require any Password)

    And Create a new user account..

    Hope it is helpful.
