Dear All ...
I have read and studied about most everything on this SYSKEY and have tried everything to fix and get into a system that is owned by a friend who was scammed by I have no clue and could care less all i know is at one point of story (as my friend is older) it went from they got a text, then told me to get on pc to i am sure click this or that link etc to showing them data remotely etc. fact is the syskey was changed about the time of this scam ... it was told to me that a bank called my friend and say oh you were compromised etc etc ... anyway forget all that ... fact is for me a Systems Administrator I thought no problem! I will fix in an hour or two and you will be back in your system kindly ... well days later and I could never get my friend back onto their pc as to bypass the syskey (please to all who read this ... most of you know what this is .. but to those who don't - it is not getting me pass the admin password etc etc ... i could only wish it was that easy, - heck i tried to study the registry keys far to in-depth for this ... but any knowledge is good knowledge. That said the fact remains I have studied every solution and tried all .. yes i can get data ... yes i can get into the system via ultimate cd for win etc ... but i could not fix the issue! i could not get pass the window upon startup which states "This computer is configure to required a password in order to start up" ... its a little gui window ... ok that said ... fine, never could fix it yet to date 11/2017 ... so my only question here is, the one solution i have NOT tried and I cannot understand and or FIND ANYWHERE but NO WHERE within the entire internet (and i know how to do research) no where does it show how to change this key to which i will state below:
Many documents say CHANGE this Key ... i say GREAT!!! but yet!!! NO ONE but NO ONE within the entire internet shows an example as to HOW!! I could not believe and still cant believe such findings show a fix that may work (and i don't care anymore about the pc if i break it as i will extract the data) the fact is I think this key change may work but how in the world is it i cannot find ONE example as to exactly what to change within the key and how ... i have never but never been stumped on any one issue in my career in tech and more so i have never but never been able to not solve a problem till this one ... and i am not giving up! i want to try the key change
So please please please does anyone know how and can show very concisely how to change the below F key! Others during my research have ask same question ... but still people are kind enough to post and copy and paste and post ... however ... I really think no one really understands how to change this key :|
Here is the instruction that are widely posted:
I have repaired the syskey issue when created by scam call from “Windows 7 Tech Support” in windows 7. I repaired customers computers (1 32-bit and 1 64-bit) successfully, To remove following the steps below:
1. Boot from windows 7 install cd.
2. When the Install Windows page appears, click Repair your computer to access system recovery options.
3. Run System Restore to last point before syskey password blocked access. (This will fail, but must be done). Click run system restore again (this will take you back to the options list)
4. Open Command Prompt from the options list.
5. Open Regedit (Type regedit into the command prompt). Regedit will open.
6. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa, and change 'SecureBoot' value to 0.
7. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SAM\SAM\Domains\Account Change F value to 0000
8. Reboot and Login
This has worked for me on two machines. After reboot I ran Super-anti Spyware, Ad-Aware and Hitman Pro to confirm, found 68 items on Super-Anti Spyware, 5 more on ad aware and no further detection's on Hitman Pro. The PC now runs fine with not Lockouts or Passwords.
The above 1 ~ 8 steps was not from me but from the internet ... but again no one but no one shows how to change the values as the values are in many ... many rows and columns within the gui box of the Value Data of the F key
So ... lets see whom here is with utmost knowledge on this please ... as-you will not find an image or video that shows how to change this Value Data properly ... oh you will find all over the place "just change the F value" ... love it ... just love it ... and the question remains for many i am sure "HOW". How do change?, what to change?, change and delete all Value Data in the white gui box of the Value Data ... there is a scroll bar in the Value Data as well ... this is a lot of data and not just one Value ... to those whom not understand this please do not attempt to answer this as this is in the registry and only the advance will understand what i speak above
meanwhile I think you very much in advance and based upon my research not finding ONE example as to HOW and WHAT to change ... i am going to be very but very surprised here to see if anyone understands this within this site ... as this site is pretty strong users ... so lets see
Again thank you in advance!
