How To Bypass The Windows 8 Password Screen
Posted 21 November 2012 - 11:19 AM
Microsoft has some soul searching to do. Windows Phone is suffering an even worse fate. They've decided on a direction and the people seem to be largely rejecting it. But just like that stupid ribbon bar, Microsoft is staying the course. How long will they stay the course?

You can disable Metro?

Oh the irony........
I'm assuming that your machine is connected to the network / internet. I think you need to rethink your password policy, or lack there of.

Keep it up Microsoft, arrogance never has and never will have a happy ending. Just look at history.

Irony indeed - just when we're hoping people will start to understand the importance of security awareness, this sort of daft advice appears. Dear old PC World

Metro works just fin on the desktop, and now that I have it configured the way I like, I can get to anything I deem important on my computer in 2 clicks or less. I also get real time updates for news/weather alerts, facebook/twitter, and even NewEgg daily shell shocker deals. Whats not to like.
When I am working on the actual desktop, it is exactly the same as it ever was, except its faster and does not have transparent windows chrome.
Lumina 920 is is selling out globally, so that kinda puts to rest your theory on Windows Phone.
Also, the ribbon has been well accepted by the majority of the office user base, just a few dinosaurs still complain about it.

I have tried to boot to the win 8 CD to do a restore point but it is asking me to choose the operating system and then try this. I don't see how that is possible. Please help me correct this problem. I advise no one to follow your advise on this matter for fear if they change their mind something unthinkable like this will happen.

instead of inputting the password at the startup screen hold the shift key while clicking on the lower right power button on the screen then click on restart this opens up a repair screen I followed the menu's to reach the restore screen. It asked for administrator password, there is none. this is the hidden administrator. I was able to restore to an earlier point and that restored my accounts to administrators.
reflecting on the series of events I did install the latest windows updates on security before attempting the above advice to drop the password. I can't see how this all led to changing my accounts to guests?
