I've spent the last couple days searching many forums looking for help with no luck. It seems there are a lot of people with the same issue, but no good results.

Here are my issues:
- After updating Windows 10 my password is no longer recognized. I'm locked out and cannot access the computer.
- My password is tied with my Office Business Account.
- I am the administrator
- I changed the password online, using another computer, but still no luck.
- I do not have a recovery key or system image.
- Fortunately, everything was backed up using another program, so i only lost a couple days info.
- I have run every troubleshooter option on the system tab. I accessed this by; 1. hitting the power button once, then simultaneously pressing the shift key and selecting restart.
- Most troubleshoot options require a BitLocker key or system image, which i do not have.
- Since everything is backed up, I want to restore Windows and delete everything, then start over. When I select "Reset this PC," I get an error, "There was a problem resetting your PC."

Anyone have any suggestions? Obviously, I would prefer to find a way into the computer without deleting everything; however, if I have to delete all the files, then that is okay, too. Only thing is, how do i do it?

I'll definitely be making a system image and sorting through BitLocker issues as soon as I get this resolved!!!

Any support would be greatly appreciated!

After you have entered your password, have you tried clicking on the eye in the password field to view what you have typed in?
