I have no idea what could have happened to my admin password on my new Windows 8,( Gateway NV ) but this is not good! I have MONTHS of research on it that I can't access, & don't know how it could have changed, I'm the only one who had it. I don't even know if that button was touched, I'm just looking at all the possible things that might have affected a password setting,
It happened when I had several windows open, mostly to different legal sites, like ILCS & heritage.org, sites I would not think would be compromised. I have Norton installed. Also Malwarebites, both have been effective & will work together. I was starting to set up the Voice program, & was programming the microphone. That's the last thing I was doing.
The speakers squelched, then a reverb was echoing ..that still is, & it picks up every tiny sound to echo.my dogs are losing their mind, it's a little freaky for me too. But the more I tried to figure out how to stop it, the more I didn'y know what I was doing, of course. The next thing that happened was every time I click to access ANYTHING, the Admin Password screen pops up, but the password I have on all three of my computers no longer works on that one, & that's the one where all the picutes are I NEED for my research. They are originl & cannot be replaced, I don't even have that camera or anything now. So they aren't saved anywhere else. I DID network the PCs together, so I can access the photos from all of them, for different portions of the work the computer is designated for. But I can't access them on those other PCs either, without Admin PW....What the heck happened??
