  1. Windows Security not accepting my password and comes back every 2 minutes


    I'm on a Windows 10 Home Machine, version 1803, and Trying to Get my Outlook Credentials accepted so I can read Work Mail.

    -

    I'm typing in my correct password, and the Windows Security popup Windows accepts it and goes away. But then, It comes back every 2-3 Minutes and asks for my Credentials again. This process repeats for every 2-3 Minutes...

    -

    No error messages, no indication whats wrong, Seems like my credentials just don't sync up somewhere

    .

    Anzbod have any Ideas, on how to troubleshoot Windows Security directly and see why its not sticking?

    :)

    Safe Mode won't accept correct password


    I'm trying to run a third party software (AVG Internet Security) cleanup file that recommends Safe Mode. Yet, when I get to the Safe Mode lock screen, it won't accept my password (note that I am entering the password, not the PIN - it's the same password that gets me into my Microsoft account). Any suggestions what I should try? I'm hesitant to run the cleanup file in full Windows since it's not recommended.

  3. My windows password won't be accepted.

    Hello,

    We appreciate your persistent patience on this issue.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to create a new user account.

    Step 1: I suggest you to boot the device to Safe mode with networking from lock screen.

    Refer to: From the sign-in screen


    Step 2: Once you are in Safe mode, I recommend you to add another user account.

    Follow the below steps to create new user account from Safe mode:

    • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt
      .
    • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user <new user name> <password> /add" (substituting the desired username for "new user name" and the desired password for "password" example: "net user newuser 12345 /add"
      (Check for the spaces)
    • Close the command prompt and restart the computer to check if you are able to see the new user account.

    Let us know if the above recommendation is helpful.

    Thank You.
