  1. windows 10 password recovery


    Haven't used my laptop in a few years. I cannot remember the password. Tried dozens of different ones without luck. I copied a password recovery on a memory stick when the laptop was new. Now I tried to use it and it says: "an error occurred while the wizard attempted to reset a new password for this account". It doesn't give any hints how to fix this. Anybody ran into this problem? The laptop was originally Windows 7 but I upgraded it about 2or 3 years ago to Windows 10 when Microsoft offered free W10online. Would that have caused the problem? Does anybody know if there is another way of bypassing the password?


    Thanks.

  2. hdd password recovery

    howdy. if this isnt the right forum please move it.
    a friend has a 3 year old hp or compaq tower. they called me to help. they are not able to get into the admin accound, because the password was changed. it was changed by them when a popup told them for security they should change thier password.
    after it was changed they could no longer get into the admin account with the password they changed it to, and the computer started sending out emails to everyone on her address list with porn and viagara type adds.
    i ran anti virus and we found 20 trogans, virus, ect. everything comes back clean now, but we still cant get into asdmin account to format drive.she doesnt have a vista system disc, just the recovery partition.
    1.. is there a way to get the password?

    2... if not can i install a new hdd and install from her recovery partition?

    3...will i be able to install new hdd and install vist from my disc or is the mb set up to not alow that?

    thanks for any help, they are on a limited budget and are true friends to me and i would like to help them. thanks! sam

    windows 10 password recovery

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
