thanks for the help.
i restarted my computer and unfortunately i got stuck in an automatic repair loop...so then i had to do the refresh but wasnt able to make a copy on a usb so copy all my data. and unfortunately all my data got deleted and i had to reinstall all my programs again, but i think i reinstalled all of them haha,
i have a few questions and was wondering if you guys could please help me out;
1. how do i fix automatic repair loop?
2. i couldnt log into my admin account, which is weird because i am the owner of my computer and the only one who gets on it. how do i put myself as admin?
i tried these instructions i found;
Go to "This PC"
Right click on the drive you want to access
Click on the "Security" tab
Click "Advanced." This will open a new window
At the top, where it lists the current owner, click "Change." A dialog box will appear
In the text field labeled "Enter the object name to select," type in your username. So if my username on that account I am currently on was named "John," than I would simply type "John" into the text field.
Now click on "Check Names"
On the bottom of the current dialog box, there is a check box with the text "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable entries from this object." This needs to be checked.
Click OK again
but i kept getting "error applying security" and "access denied" when i tried to change my admin permissions? how can i fix this?
3. and unfortunately my System Restore still isnt working after i completed the refresh...is there a way for me to reinstall it somehow?
thanks again dc & old rocker, i really appreciate the help, and am very grateful!
