    Re: I cannot get past windows login screen

    When the login screen appears it also says I forgot password.
    I have tried to retrieve my password but that doesn't work.
    Eventually I got a black screen with the windows symbol date time
    etc at the bottom but unable to click on any of them. At the side of
    the cursor/arrow is an egg timer Help

    Hi SusanW

    Have you been able to log in?

    Is this a local account or Microsoft account?

    Is your data backed up?

    No I haven't.

    This is my husbands computer and he doesn't use it very often.
    I think he may have done some thing last time he switched it off.
    I am really not sure what kind of account it is.
    There isn't much data to back up.
    I think I will get some one to come and take a look at it.
    Thank you
