type in "SLUI.exe 4" (No "")   make sure to put a space between the e and the 4

To access this, open the Start menu and select Settings. Click the “Update & security” icon and select “Recovery.” You should see a “Go back to Windows 7” or “Go back to Windows 8.1” option. Click the Get started button to get rid of your Windows 10 install and restore your previous Windows install.

when computer first powers up , keep hitting F2 button and then choose the restore option you want.

BusinessMessaging.exe Qt5Widgets.dll error after uninstalling Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

by lunarg on January 22nd 2016, at 11:53

After uninstalling Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from a domain-joined computer, you may get the following error each time the computer reboots:
BusinessMessaging.exe - System ErrorThe program can't start because Qt5Widgets.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
To resolve the issue, you need to manually remove a registry key using regedit:

On 32-bit, navigate to the key:


On 64-bit, navigate to the key:


Remove the value with name Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

On the system i was working on I could not get local user accounts snap in to load in to the mmc. so i used a commandline command to change the password.

To change the password for one of these accounts is very simple. Say the Windows account name is asks and you want to change the password to mypa$$word then you just need to type the following :

net user asks mypa$$word

once you've completed the password change, repeat the first steps to re-rename your utilman.exe.bak to utilman.exe

move c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe.bak  c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe


First, start by booting your Windows 10 installation into the setup by changing the boot order in your BIOS to take priority with the CD, or use the ISO as a startup disk instead.

Once the setup begins, hit Shift+F10

This will bring up a command prompt. From here, we’re going to use the command prompt to replace the Utility Manager at the login screen with cmd.exe with the following commands:

move c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe.bak

copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\utilman.exe

Once this is complete, use the command “wpeutil reboot” to restart the machine.

After you’re back at the login screen, click the Utility Manager.

This is the prompt you’ll use to create a new administrative user from the login screen. Type in the following commands, replacing <username> with the name you’d like to assign to the new account (no carrots).

net user <username> /add

net localgroup administrators <username> /add

Now close the prompt, reboot, and you should see your new user in the login screen.

Click in here, and enter your fresh desktop. From the desktop, right click the Start menu in the bottom-right hand corner, and select “Computer Management”.

Navigate to “Local Users and Groups”, scroll down to the affected account, and right-click. Choose the “Set Password” option, and choose a new set of credentials to regain access to your locked account!

It should be noted that this method will only work to fully recover accounts that are designated to sign on locally. If you need to get your Microsoft Live account password back, you’ll have to retrieve it through the online forms mentioned above.
