Hello! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, e-readers and printers.

The fastest and easiest way for me to fix this for you would to remotely access your computer and work on it while you watch. If you're willing to do that please click the link below:

On the page that opens up, click "I Agree."

Download the remote file when prompted, and then OPEN/RUN the "Elsinore Screen Connect" file downloaded (at the very bottom of your browser window, usually in the left corner.)

I'll then be connected.

I am sorry but I have never seen anything like this before. Although you still have access to the phone and email that are listed in recovery options and even though it says that a code will be sent, you are never given the opportunity to enter that code.

It will likely take someone at Google to fix this. You may call one of the numbers
listed below, however the lines are automated, and requesting to speak with someone can lead to
hold times up to three hours or more.
