Windows 10, Home Clean Install

There is always the drastic action, reinstall. I know you do not want to hear this, with the reinstallation problems and all, but just keep in in mind.

umm well....
you need to boot into command prompt and activate your administrator account

hit F8 as the computer is booting up and go into safe mode with DOS prompt command prompt.

when command prompt comes up.. type:

net user administrator /active:yes

should say sucessful...then reboot, she have admin in the welcome screen, go into your admin account and reset your password
