    can't access the main computer file system

    Installed 8.1 update and it selected a login identification location of a folder I had created to transfer files from my lap top to the pc. I emptied the files as I verified the contents last year. Now it will not let me access the main computer file system to make changes due to no network admin password. Which I believe to be saved on the folder group I cant access. What do I have to do to get this machine to recognize the files I need for my business.
    I tried to get rid of this update without success via refresh. If I have to format the drive I will. I need this computer to operate the graphic programs it has. So what do I do to get this off my computer>\?

    Please help me I have a customers product designed and ready to create, but cant access it........ hopefully I can save this somehow if not I will be two more weeks in redesign and most likely lose a very valuable account.

    Thanks Max

Can't access windows 8 computer.
