    Windows 10_when Startup: There can not be signed in to your account.

    Since I've received the anniversary update from Windows 10 (version 1607), regularly when starting up my computer, this message appears on the monitor: There can not be signed in to your account.

    Know that I'm the only user of these computer, the administrator, without a password.

    How can I solve this issue?

    Thanks a lot in advance for the co-operation!

    Hoi Davidas,
    this is a problem created after the anniversary update of Windows 10.
    You can find many suggested solutions on the Internet, but few bring a solution, and the one is more complicated than the other.
    Now, I have applied below instruction and since then no problems at all to open Windows normally.
    There also are many critics who think that this is not THE solution, but who cares!

    Click the Windows key + X
    click Command Prompt and run as Administrator.
    It opens a small black screen and you type the following:
    net user administrator / active: yes
    and press enter.
    Shut down and restart your PC afterwards.
    9 in 10 this would be a success, if this should not happen anyway repeat everything and then type instead of yes .... no.
    net user administrator / active: no

    I already tried that but without success. Although I already have it kind of fixed with the following solution.
    I was able to make a new local account which I gave administrator rights. I could login to that new account from where I copied all the files from the first user to this new one because of the admin rights.
    But thanks for your help anyway.

    Hope this helps someone with the same problem!
