    Removed wrong account

    You might have some luck with System Restore- using a restore point - if you have a recently created restore point (requires you to have enabled System Restore).

    That could restore the account- but any data is another matter- that's not protected by System restore and is likely being overwritten.

    Do you mean an account you created with Admin rights - or the built-in Admin account?

    If, of course, you use disk imaging routinely (e.g. Macrium Reflect - free- as we so often urge users to do here), you can simply restore your PC from a previously created disk image.

    Hi, thank you for your reply, the problem is I cannot get past the log-in on the computer, so it just tells me wrong log-in very difficult to over come for me.

    Hi there
    Do you have a bootable restore -- if so boot from that device and restore system.

    It's so easy these days to back up windows --plenty of free tools around - favourite on this forum seems to be Macrium --very good and reliable --100% free for what you need --also can do "bare metal" restores i.e boot from USB device and run restore image program.

    If you had System Restore enabled, then at the login screen, click the power button bottom right, then SHIFT + left click restart and navigate thru the prompts to System Restore.

    Please feel free to consult the relevant tutorial (Tutorial section) if in doubt.

    However, this would probably require a password, so if you have deleted your only user account, may not be available to you.

    Have you read thru the link I posted? Solutions there do not require you to log in.
