    Local account log in problem - "Signing Off" endless loop


    Recently upgraded my Toshiba Satellite NB 10A-laptop from Windows 8.1 to Win 10 and have been logging in via my Hotmail account. Went to settings to set up Local Account, completed the password settings. Then had the choice to Sign Off or Cancel. Chose Sign Off (thinking Cancel would void my new Local Account) and now, for many hours, my laptop is locked into an endless loop of Signing Off.

    Where to now? Any help would be appreciated thank you.

    lvr181 - I'm having this endless auto_sign_out loop issue (on my BRAND NEW Win10Pro notebook) after blasting an MS Acc. usr1, retaining the Users\usr1 folder, creating a Local Account usr1, using Reprofiler from IWR Consultancy to ASSIGN the Local usr1 to existing Users\usr1 folder.

    Tried changing the passwd, checking caps-lock, trying fake passwd (to see that my hint is echoed) etc.. - nothing works.

    Short of blowing away Users\usr1 and starting all over again, how does one resolve this issue - how did YOU - thanks!

    In desperation I kept pressing the F8 key during the boot process and eventually the loop stopped and allowed me back into the computer again. I am wondering if there was an unannounced Windows update going on that was causing the loop. This endless loop has not re-occurred.
