Customer Question
This is my Question. I...

This is my Question. I have beat my head against the wall to no avail. It all started with "Access Denied" or other errors are displayed when you access or work with files and folders in Windows. I guess I should be looking for the Site where I chatted with Microsoft support techs, who used "Remote Control" to make changes which included "helping me" change my MicrosoftLive Account password, which did not require being changed, BUT that's how my PC got in such bad shape in the first place. NOW I CANNOT EVEN FIND THE PARTICULAR WEB SITE I had approximately 5 or 6 Chat Sessions, of which I know at least one was purposely ended, 1 was just abandoned and I was left hanging for over 20 minutes. All were Listed as SR#(###) ###-#### ***** I was left still not being able to make changes to my information. I am not claiming that things were done intentionally to cause me problems with regard to User Account "Users" which control my access to system changes. What I did not know was that WIn 8.1 User Accounts does not include a user account ADMINISTRATOR nor a Hidden Administrator. As I researched my problem, I thought I knew I had a User Set for myself as ADMINISTRATOR One of The first techs I chatted with asked if I had tried set up an actual Administrator. I said I wasn't sure, they then had me to do so. BUT for whatever reason the user displayed as Josh Penland. So I now have USer Accounts :standard= my self, standard= Nana, and administrator = josh! When I continued to have the same errors and each time it was indicated that I needed permission from user josh, a couple of chatters had me reset my MicrosoftLive.com password. Now because somehow I had neglected to record my user jack's password, I cant log into my PC because I do not know the password ***** Admin user josh. (I am able to log into my PC because I set a four digit code as alternative means of access, but I can not complete changes because I do not know josh"s password. Now, these are some of the things I know I need to know! (which using some of Microsoft publications, I have not been able to accomplish) 1 Correcting "Access Denied" when working with files and folders 2 I do not have Ownership or permissions 3 Rest lost or forgotten Admin Password ***** Net User Commands 5 Reset passwords when forgotten 6 Reset passwords using command prompt 7 Use Password ***** and Advanced 8 Use NETPLWIZ

I can recover or restore my PC, but just rather not for fear of not getting something important backed up

This sounds like the Microsoft tech may have been a fraud.

Randy Sorry I could not get back with you today (sat 2-30-2016).

Tho I was tied up, I had bout half expected that you would have given thought and posted me an answer bout exactly howto begin fixing my main problem, plus all my other problems, and all the problems of this country, and heck yes, all the programs of this tiny world.. Naw just kidding LOL

Did not really know what to expect, since I wasnt able to get back today.

Seems like everything I can understand and/or down load off the net - Microsoft etc- is either vague, incomplete, or I just do not comprehend enough to fix it. Seems the first and major issue is to get the MicrosoftLive.com password ***** as the Administrator password ***** which I cant do cause I do not know the Administrator's current password. And I do know the Miscrosoft Live password ***** it does not need to be changed.

I know I can do a history backup (?) and then restore the system, but am afraid I might miss something and lose something.

Anyway thanks for your help

Tech Support Specialist: Randy Computer Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Randy, here I go again! Now its medical. Monday @1pm, I am going to have a small, short procedure done at a local hospital. Nothing of any worry - except they put you to sleep, then hope they can wake you up in 40 minutes. Just a new thing concerning attaching "a pacemaker as such" to your bladder. My wife had it done 2 weeks ago, and I gonna try. Anyway Ill be out of it afterwards tomorrow, but will be in touch Tuesday.

I have still been trying tofind the problem on my PC, but all indications are I have got to get the password ***** my accounts administrator but nothing so far has worked.

If you can and have any suggestions, just post em to me, and Ill try em when the fog lifts.

Thanks and have a good day

HI Randy

This stuff is about to drive me bonkers!!!

Until late night, I kept last night, I kept trying all the suggestion etc as I have been able to gleen from Forums, reviews, and Microsoft postings per downloads.

Then it dawned on me that I cant complete any of them (and could probably do em all, ) Because I can't get "RESET WINDOWS 8.1 PASSWORD ***** WHEN FORGOT IT"

and I need that password ***** the user account that I have setup as the Administrator I designated, but not signed in with!

HERE IS THE LINK TO WHAT i AM TRYING TO USE.

http://www.isunshare.com/windows-8-password/windows-8.1-password-reset-when-forgot-it.html

I just cant seem to either understand or just not get it to work. Would you please if you could answer that for me, first!

Hi Jack. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Is the administrative "Josh" account set up to log in with a Microsoft account.

In other words, is there an email address that displays on the "Josh" login screen?

Hi Byron, I am Jack. Thanks for joining to get this "Monkey OFF MY back" I really hate it when something doesnt work for me and, worse, I CANT FIX IT myself, and nothing I have tried has worked either.

OK ?1. No Josh is not set with our Microsft Account PASSWORD. (I was working with A Microsoft Answer Desk Teck, when they wanted me to Install AN Administrator, as there was not one on my USER LIST. Well when the system created "Josh, "WE" had used some other PW, and then I forgot to WRITE IT DOWN or REMEMBER IT. Then my problems to multiply or so it seems...

Yes and no

As i entered earlier, when chatting with Microsoft Answer Desk, the Teck had try to setup a used account that would show in the USER Account. The only thing that worked to create an ADVISOR was to faux user Josh Penland, with that email address, and a PASSWORD ***** I realized a week later was that users password ***** was not same as microsoft account name , and now I do not remember what we entered

Tech Support Specialist: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

We can try giving them as much info as you can and see what happens.

We can also create a password ***** disk that has a feature that

will unlock the master Administrator account but this is something

that doesn't always work.

I have printouts after printout titled as: reset windows 8.1 login password ***** forgot

titled as: reset windows 8.1 login password ***** lost etc

Yes I purchased and have Genius but although Microsoft says WHEN FORGOT meaning I aint got it. Trying to run it still asks for the Azdministrator PW . Unless I just dont knnow how to follow instructions I dunno

I just downloaded the trial version of that software and created the bootable flash drive.

It worked in the sense that I was able to boot from the drive and run the program

but since it wasn't fully functional as a trial I can't say how it works.

Do you have another PC you can use as an administrator to create your disk or flash drive?

yes I have another pc to work with, but I am going to have to call it a daynow.

Been up since 5:30am

Spent 6+ hours in Hospital check in, minor surgery op room, and wake up and recovery and check out.

And right now I doubt I could follow another word on instructions

Will see what I can do tomorrow

Sorry

Thanks

Oh as to your ? If everybody knew how to defeat Microsoft security none of us would be safe.

With all the passwod double checks and safegaurds through the Microsoft Live account would that not afford us the ability to somehow obtain information regarding our personal info, data, and Hardware? etc

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
