    I've had a couple of updates recently after which I had to run the "Restore" and "Install" commands. All good.
    Yesterday however the lock screen came up again from Hibernation. BUT..........there were no updates.
    I ran "Restore" successfully, but when I ran "Install" it said: "sorry, your LogonController.dll has an unknown MD5"
    Very frustrating and I am getting to the point of surrender to Microsoft.................., BUT, that's not me!

    Fixed it: I have 3 computers with windows 10, all are up-to-date with winver. 1607.14393.321
    I copied the LogonController.dll & the .bak files from a computer that has NO logonscreen to a memory stick and copied them to my "faulty" computer. After a re-boot I still had the logonScreen. Then I ran the "Restore" & "Install" commands and now it's all OK again.
    But, what caused the system to show up with a LogonScreen in the first place is still a mistery.

    Any ideas how to re-enable a lockscreen that has stopped appearing since updating to the Anniversary Update? I realise this is the stated goal of most people on this thread, but I am using a tablet where a lockscreen is essential. The reg file in the OP makes no difference. Will copying the LogonController.dll from another similar (but not identical) tablet where the lockscreen does appear do the trick? I have just such a tablet to hand...

    Hello ssme,

    Double check to see if this below may be the issue.

    If you turn on Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen, then you will need to make sure that you have Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing checked in your visual effects settings to prevent the lock screen background not displaying properly.

    Just checked and that's not the issue, sadly. It seems as though Windows 10 "forgets" it's meant to show the lock screens, as everything is set up to have them appear. Something was obviously switched in the AU update, and now there's no way to get them back.

    (I realise how contrary I sound in this thread where everyone else is striving to do the exact opposite )

    ssme,

    You might see if running a SFC /SCANNOW command may help if you have a corrupted or modified system file at fault.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest other than a repair install may help.

    Hello everybody...and glad to be here.
    I'm trying to understand the 4 options to "disable ... disable ... disable ... disable the damn lock screen"!.
    I have an intel NUC used for a HTPC with installed Windows 10 pro. There only 1 user (me as a administrator). All the configs are set to don't ask for password at startup, there isn't screensaver, no sleep, no turn off display etc...

    I think then that the lock screen it's another thing. Because it's said, if i have a W10 pro the only method valid its THREE.
    But you're saying i need to "force" login at startup computer, then logout , then force sleep, then log again to this method works.
    It will disable the lock screen when a user locks the computer, signs out, and resume from sleep.
    I don't understand.
    If i have the "don't ask for password" at startup it's this method valid?

    thanks

    Hello orbtwin, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It means that the option will disable the lock screen seen when a user performs those actions. None of which are for at startup, but since you have Windows set to automatically sign in to your account at startup, you won't see the lock screen at startup anyways.
