    I can't get any help with my problem, maybe you can help.

    I just insalled Win 8 on my Vista computer. It worked fine with my old password from Vista, but the a new log-in screen came up &
    the first line was my full name. Under it was my correct Email address. Under that was the place to enter the password. I entered the password that was working befpre & it came bacK "The Email address or password is incorrect, Please try again"

    If I can't log in how do I proceed?

    Thanx

    Mine did that as well. The password is the Windows account/Skydrive one on mine.

I am getting access denied when attempting to get into a folder. Just recently installed Windows8. I had the same issue with win7, but I managed to resolve it. What do I need to do to get around this? I don't remember ever having had a problem with simply getting into one of my own folders.
