    I then went on to try the next thing which is the elevated administrative fix. I enterer regedit and up csme registry editor. Following the instructions I went to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then I went to 'file' then hit on 'Load Hive' when I click on load hive a box opens with a file that says recovery. ..but there's nothing in it. So, this is where I am. Am I doing something wrong?

    When i type dir in the command prompt it says
    Volume in drive c is System Reserved
    Volume Serial Number is...it gives a number
    Somehow i think because it was his business copy of win 10 ??

    The command prompt will look like this. X:sources> Type C: at the prompt and press Enter. That will change the drive letter to C:\> Now type dir at the prompt and press Enter. Read the output. It should look like this.

    <dir> Preflogs
    <dir> Program files
    <dir> Program files (x86)
    <dir> Users
    <dir> Windows


    If C:\ does not look like that, type D: and press Enter, that will bring you to D:\>. type dir again and press Enter, look for the above directory’s (folders). If D: drive does not have the above folders, Type E: and press Enter, at the E: prompt, type dir and look for the above folders. I just tried it myself and the Windows directory (Folder) was on the E: drive. Your Windows drive letter might be C, D, E, or F.
    So, if at the C prompt, you don't find the items in red, then that's not the partition with Windows on it. Change to D and try dir again. You need to find out which letter has been assigned to your Windows partition. Then you can continue with the next commands.

    When i get to where the files you list above, in red, i type in the command you gave and it says that it's an unknown command. I put it the exacy way you said, and that's what i get. It says to type bcdedit/? And get command line assistance. In the assistance it says that the command bcdedit is Boot Configuration Data Store Edititor. Then it says this.......
    The bcdedit. exe command-line tool modifies the boot configuration data store. The boot configuration data stored contains boot configuration parameters and controls how the operating system is booted. These parameters were previously in the Boot.ini file (in BIOS-based systems) or in the nonvolatile RAM entries (in Extensible Firmware Interface-based systems ) . You can use Bcdedit. exe to add, delete, edit, and append entries in the boot configuration data store.
    It goes on to say if i want a list of bcdedit.exe detailed commands and options to type
    Bcdedit.exe/?

    So should i try the regedit way? Or ?

    been trying to get back to my regular desktop but when I restart it comes up back at the password, safe-mode place, but I can choose either my other, non admin account....or the admin account. The admin account opens to my desktop in safe-mode. I went to the command prompt and put msconfig in and put a check in the box for Normal Startup. When I restart it just repeats the same 2 log in choices with the safe mode password screen in the background. I know I'm missing, a step takes it out of admin safe mode, or I'm not sure, I went to look at the users, (by using the switch users option) and both admin and regular user accounts are there, should I choose my regular account there then log out of admin and restart? or just restart?
    I think I'm close to being back to regular.
    I think
