    Downgrade after changed Administrator account password


    After installing Windows 10, I changed my Administrator account password, losing my EFS-encryption on some system files.

    I didn't read the fine print:

    Now, I can't downgrade because it keeps giving me the error when trying to downgrade that I need to remove the Administrator (even though I de-activated it through net user Administrator /active:no).
