You should have a Microsoft account.

If that is the case you will be able to follow the password ***** steps for your Microsoft account.

If you don't have a Microsoft account and you are using a local account, you will need to completely restore the machine, losing all data.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

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
