Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

Viet - Computer Tech :

I'm sorry about the issue. Can you confirm it has windows 7? Can you back up the data on your wife's account? Is it okay if we reset the laptop? Please let me know. Thank you,

Customer: Don't bother as I can't back up and spent £28 for nothing !
Viet - Computer Tech :

I'm sorry, don't worry, we guarantee our service. What do you mean? Do you need any data on your wife's login?

Viet - Computer Tech :

Do you have a USB drive that you can copy / transfer any file you need to the usb drive?

Customer: I have a external hard drive but cannot access administrator level to reset to previous access
Viet - Computer Tech :

I understand. First, do you need any data from your wife's account?

Viet - Computer Tech :

If yes, then transfer those data to the external hard drive first
