    Weird thing happened this morning


    A few months ago I upgraded my neighbor to Windows 10. I set up a local account with no password. Everything went well up until this morning, when she turned on her computer, it told her that her password had expired and she needed to make a new one. Looking at the screen, it appeared to be a legitimate Windows message. I clicked on "change password" and a screen prompt asked me to type in the old password. Since there was no old password I left it blank. Then it prompted for a new password, I left that blank also and clicked on "change password. After that all went well, I restarted, it booted without asking for a password and everything seems fine. I have never seen this message and I've seen a lot of Windows problems. I do voluntary tech support for a large senior community. If anyone knows what caused the message to change a non-existent, expired password, please let me know. Was this a real message or an attempt to gain her password?

  2. Weird thing happening to my windows 10.

    After 3+ weeks of having windows 10, today this weird thing started to happen. http://imgur.com/4OSKHHh I
    demonstrate it here. Randomly, applications start to minimize/comeback up without me doing anything. its really annoying. Im getting to the point of reinstalling W10 to fix this. Was wondering if anyone has had this problem and might have a fix. (It happens
    to all my applications.)

    Edit: More demonstrations http://imgur.com/L7vcyTd

    Every time i left click, the screen goes back for 1 second then the little task bar thing moves. Its unplayable with this doing this. Imgur

    Weird things happening to my computer.


    I am having weird things happen to my computer, I was doing things online the other day and it just shut down on me. So I did a little research and ended up doing a chkdsk /r because I couldn't refresh/reset/backup my computer in recovery mode. It kept giving me an error code. So finally, I just did the chkdsk, which took a little over 3 days and 16 hours, last night I was watching it scan things and it went to 100% on stage 2 and then gave me the HP symbol and told me it was restoring disk an this process could take more than one hour. It did that for about 15 hours, now I have an illuminated black screen. I don't know what else to do and I can't find a forum to give me any answers on this. Thanks in advance for any help!
