Follow this steps shown below which includes Instructions and Screenshots carefully and gain access to the Windows Computer. ENJOY
1. First, restart the computer and you should see on you screen an image showing similar as the one here below. ( Depending on your Windows operation System.)
2. Once you get to this screen, hold the power button on the computer for a few seconds usualy betwen 5-10 seconds until it turns off. (no damage will happen to your computer here)
3. If you have followed this step correctly, you should get this screen. If you get something like “Windows did not shut down correctly” try again. Then select “Launch Startup Repair”
4. Let the repair go through. Only If you get this window showing above here, just select “Cancel”
5. When this window shows up on your computer, click on “Show problem details” Scroll down, and click the link on the very bottom. Notepad will pop up showing a X:windows/system32/en-US/errofflps.text file. This sentence may very depending on your windows if it is a 32BITS or 64BITS, the Language, and also the windows Operation system.
6. When you have been able to open the .TEXT file then just Go to File/Open and double-click your. “Local Disk” (Mine is D:/ because I have a virtual machine. Yours will probably be C:/) Right now in the next step we are going to seek for a file.
7. Go to Windows/System32 . ( If you have 64Bits Windows Go to System64 ) Now do EXACTLY as the following you are going to read here, or you MIGHT break the computer. So just be carefull with this following Step. Under “Files of type” select “All files” Scroll down and find “cmd” then make a copy of it in the same folder (Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V). You should get a file named “cmd – Copy” or something like that. For Newbies you can also just use the Richt Click > Copy then after that Paste the cmd within the same folder and again you should get “Cmd-Copy” or “Cmd-1”.
8. Find “sethc” in the same folder named “System32” or here again if you have 64bits the numbers should end with 64.This file executes sticky keys. Rename it to “sethc 1”
9. Rename your “cmd – Copy” to “sethc” Close notepad, and hit “Finish” to shut down your PC, or just restart it manually.
10. Once you get back to the login screen (where it says “Press Control – Alt – Delete” Ignore my background, I don’t have that enabled), press “Shift” 5 times to open up the command prompt.
11. Next, we need to find out what user is the local administrator for this PC. To do this, type “net localgroup Administrators” and look for any administrator that does NOT have your school/work domain in front of it, followed by a “/ ” As you can see, one of the admins is named “qwaszx” You will probably see a name like this, since schools/workspaces tend to make it a random string of letters and/or numbers to ward off people from entering it.
12. Now, we need to change that account’s password. Type “net user <ACCOUNT NAME HERE> *” and type the new password twice. It will not show what you’re typing, but your keystrokes are being registered. You can now log in to your admin account! However, schools/workspaces also like to disable the admin account you just changed the password for, so you might not be able to log in. There is a simple fix. If you get that message, go to the extra step showing below.
13. If the admin account shows as disabled, type “net user <ACCOUNT NAME HERE> /active:yes” You will now be able to log in.
14. You now should have full admin rights to the Windows PC. Enjoy! And this really works !!
