Hello Peter, and thank you for using this service.

Sorry you are having trouble. I will help you now.

Do you login to your Windows 10 with a microsoft account (EMAIL ADDRESS), or do you use a simple name. For example "Peter"

Expert:  technicalcat replied 1 month ago.

It's kind of rare for a regular user account to have a password ***** unless you truly just forgot it. Did this problem start up after a virus or any other incident with the computer? Has your login screen changed in any way, or does it look the same?

Expert:  technicalcat replied 1 month ago.

The phone support is just an optional service that would make helping you a lot easier for this type of problem. If you wish , we can continue here with Q&A. It will just take longer and may be more difficult, because you can't currently login to your computer.

Dear *****,

I am another expert and my name is***** it would be a pleasure to help you further with this. Can you, at first, please make sure that you are not using a Microsoft account to log into your Windows? Because you said that this happened after an update, which usually means that your local account has been converted into a Microsoft account, for which you need to use your Microsoft account password.

if that really isn´t the case, then we must create a special rescue-disk that can "crack" the password. Are you familiar with booting from USB-sticks with your UEFI? Just want to get a feel of how experienced you are, so that I can guide your correctly.

Thank you very much and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck
