I have an older friend who has an elderly mother, I think she was a victim of a tech support scam and her computer was Syskey'd, anyone know how we can fix it?
What's the number she called? When she called? What's her first name?
Maybe i can help.
I would try random passwords untill you get the diagnostic screen,then go to advance and do a restore,hopefully this helped if it didn't I can try to help you more!
Koko I'll speak to my friend, he didn't say much about it earlier
There may be a hack around it, using a Windows CD and the Command Prompt.
I'd recommend memes' idea. Flinty94
If you can boot into a linux OS, you can remove the syskey.
Also go to the system32 and delete syskey after this is fixed.
