    I also was getting an issue, later I found out that it was Avast Anti Virus which was not allowing me to go into safe mode.
    Press the F8 or SHIFT + F8 keys on your keyboard to enter safe mode. Then press F4 for minimum safe mode.

    This is really helpful. I spent hours on fixing this issue and it turns out OP suggestion is the most effective one.

    Hi ffansszi,

    The password reset tool PFTool.exe is designed to delete the old passward. Then you can run your Protected Folder to create a new password.

    Cheers!
