    Windows 8 Professional

    Those Dell options do not appear for me in the Troubleshoot menu.

    I tried the "Reset PC" option, but it requires an "Administrator" login, but only give me the option to the user the account that is currently logged in, which of course is the issue since I can't login to that account.

    In that case, you should be able to refresh Windows at boot instead.
