I can apparently read much better than you. You were asked:
  • (post #14) "Who told your friend that, and why aren't they helping him, then?"
  • (post #14) "you don't actually tell us what Microsoft TOLD YOU (when you contacted them), what you did/tried from them, or what articles from MS you followed, that you're not having luck with. "
  • (post #16) "If you're saying that (between the two of you), there is only ONE PC, and you can't log into it...how did you manage to download/burn Linux to a thumb drive?? And again, you can boot from the pre-installed Windows recovery partition, and follow those instructions. And you quite obviously have a second computer, since you're posting *HERE*, right???"
  • (post #19) "If he's already changed/reset the password (you say he's done it 3 times), then why did you say in your very first post "The problem is the password. The password was changed and now I cannot log on no matter what I do." **and** You say now it's your 'friends' PC...but your first post said that YOU cannot log on. Which is it? **and** His 'friend' is out of town? Then why can't he call his 'friend' and ask what the password is? Why can't he boot from the recovery partition and reset things? If it's been reset, why can't he use what he set it to??
And post #21 summed up the questions for you. You still haven't answered them....if you did, tell me where you posted them, because I sure can't find the answers.

You were given a link in post #3, that tells you how to reset a Windows password. Simple steps, with pictures. That resolves your issue. If you can't follow those steps, or can't do what Microsoft tells you (you *CLAIM* to have called them, but still don't actually say what they told you), there's nothing anyone can do for you.

So again: if you've changed the password 3x (as YOU SAID), why can't you log in with it??

Not sure why you feel the need to post towards me like this, ondoho, but certainly not the first time.

i felt the need to speak out my support to make it clear that IMO you're having more than just an exchange of personal attacks there.
in other words, that you have a point.

I see. However, I am NOT 'attacking' the OP, and have not; OP was asked questions which weren't answered, and this entire thread makes zero sense on its face.

The OP's 'friend' has a computer that was (apparently) borrowed from another 'friend', got locked out, and a third 'friend' suggested they use Linux (for some reason). Yet these 'friends' somehow pick the OP (someone who claims to NOT EVEN OWN A PC from post #20), to post a question for them???

I handed the OP a link in post #3 that tells them how to use ANY bootable Windows ISO (and, since they downloaded a LINUX ISO and burned it to a stick somehow, they can obviously burn a WINDOWS ISO too...), and about 5 simple steps to reset a forgotten/locked Windows password. No third-party tools needed, and it'll even work booting from the recovery partition. And they keep claiming they have already reset the password 3x, but won't bother saying why they can use it to log in with, if that's the case.

Again I am hoping this is the last post,first this not my pc I was trying to help someone out what they do or not do is their problem Whatever was advised to do was past on to someone else NOT Me. The password was reset 3x's on Microsofts advise. I am using a bootable linux usb to chat here it's the pc that is having the password problem. I have been told that the windows password was reset on a linux os (the actual os not a usb) and when he went to log on to windows it said password was reset on another system you need to reset it on this(windows) system thus all the confusion with the password reset. What I told you is what I was told, so if I caused any riff it's on me. My apologies

Which were a couple of the questions you were asked, and didn't answer: why you (who claims to not have a PC AT ALL) were asked to post a question for a friend, and why that other 'someone' who told you to use Linux hasn't helped either you OR your friend after giving you that advice.

Line bolded/underlined above for emphasis. In 36 posts back and forth and all your vitriol, this is the first **ACTUAL PIECE OF INFORMATION** you have provided. Had you bothered doing this a while back, we could have easily told you that you have used a password reset USB from another Windows computer, which will not work on anything other than the system it was created on. We have to ASSUME this, because (AGAIN), you have **STILL** not actually told us what you did, but have to base this on the error message you have finally provided.

Which takes us back to post #3, my very first reply to you, and reading the link provided. Section #3: "Reset Windows 10 administrator password with installation iso". Seven very simple steps. Had your 'friend' followed them, that would have been the end of your problems.

...bringing us back again to "Why didn't/doesn't your 'friend' just post their own questions??". And I doubt your 'friend' told you to post things like:
  • What to expect NOTHING FROM YOU IT'S OBVIOUS YOU KNOW NOTHING AGAIN READ THE POST
  • Thanks for no help
  • do you know how to read? The answers are there in the post

Why duesn't he post? because he asked me too which I very much regret. Now for the last time I'm asking for an administrator to close this account as I have no use for it and as far as my no longer friend as he put it he can make his own account.

Hi NEWBIE#101,

You can't actually delete an account. Please see the FAQ:

Quote:
How do I delete my LQ account?

We do not remove accounts that have posts associated with them. Setting the two email preferences to "No" means that you will never hear from us again. We will remove accounts that do not have any posts associated with them, and do periodically automatically remove accounts that have no posts and have been inactive for an excessive amount of time. If you have never posted and would like your account removed, please use the Contact Us form and let us know.
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...count_deletion

Many thanks for trying to help your friend. I'm sorry it didn't work out in the end but hopefully your friend can resolve their issue themselves.
