Windows 10: name_000 password???

    name_000 password???


    My computer (Windows 10) will not start up but it has created a kim_000 username for which I don't know the password.

    When I finally get past either a blank screen or sad face screen after multiple start up attempts, it takes me to an advanced options page. Once I am there all my system restore / recovery / startup repair options to try get back into my computer go straight to log in as administrator - but the only administrator username I have as an option is kim_000 which I never set up and therefore don't know the password for!

    PLEASE HELP, I AM ON A SERIOUS DEADLINE AND CAN'T LOG IN

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi Nic and welcome to Tenforums.

    Please try enabling the hidden administrator account at command prompt (Option #4); delete or change the password for kim_000 and you should be good to go. I would then perform a system restore.
