    Alias elbmek


    System keeps refusing my pass and also wont let me get past visual authentication, so I have had to re-register in order to get in.

    Hello Mike,

    I will send you an email to your gmail address registered to the elbmek account with a new password.

    Mike,

    It appears that your email address for the "elbmek" account is no longer valid, so I sent the email to this account's address instead.

    Let me know when you have access, so I can delete this "red devil" account.

    Great news. Looks like John took care of the email address for you.

    Brink, thanks, and thanks to John too. I have reverted to win 8 and am still updating pc. 8.1 was mysteriously dropping files and the 8.1 repair disks I bought would not activate because of differing codes, so it told me. So now back on 8 and all seems to be fine.

    Hope this installation goes smoother for you.

    It has been a lot smoother (& faster too). Also it only took me 4 attempts today to log in, thats an improvement already!!! I moved my tons of stuff offline to a standby HDD on a dock, so did not lose anything. The changeover states that nothing will be saved but 90% of my stuff (and 4 others users) was left in situ. Thats a big bonus.
