    So I did a system restore and forgotten my password when I usually enter my pin code signing in.. and now the reset password disk usb don't even work after I had change the password. There's no way in and I can't even seem to activate Built-in Administrator. The reason why I did a restore because the start menu keep having errors but not on other 'test account' and admin. Is there anyway to erase my password or reset it? It's Windows 10 Home upgraded from Windows 8.1. I couldn't even revert back to windows 8.1 because files are needed which is stupid.

    You mean the USB version? Honestly I used the ISO burnt on CD and it works perfect. However you can still download iso and then write to usb with tool like RUFUS.
