    Canít login after Windows reboots after update


    I guess about a month ago, I was unable to login to my computer after Windows automatically rebooted after an update, receiving a message something about a group policy preventing access. I was unable to use either my PIN or MS password. I was running Windows 10 Home, version 1809. After I got done panicking, I manually rebooted and was able to successfully login with my PIN. I experienced this again last week after an update and a Windows automatic reboot. Yesterday I upgraded to 1903 and after the final reboot I experienced this once again. Itís not a show-stopper as I now know how to work around this issue, by restarting but it is a PITA. Any ideas?

    Hi Pegasus416. Welcome to the TenForums @Pegasus416

    After this machine initiated boot you say you cannot enter your password or Pin. After you enter the information and before you hit enter or get to last digit in Pin could you please click on the symbol in the right hand side of box to see what has been keyed. Is it correct?

    While more difficult could you create another "Local User" in prep next Tuesday, assuming we get an update, and if it auto reboots see if that account can be accessed.

    Ken, thanks for your reply. As Murphyís Law would have it, I was unable to login this morning even with a reboot. And stupidly I never activated the super admin account. So, I worked on it offline, using a Linux disk, adding the super admin account and a local admin account. Problem solved. My original user account must have become corrupt. Luckily, the first thing I always do is partition the HDD or SSD to have a data partition. This has always saved my bacon, especially on this machine, my business PC. Thanks again for your response.

    Cool.

    I would also look at Macrium or some tool to Image your system. Another bacon saver.

    Ken, I use the Windows 7 imaging tool that is in Windows 10. I also separately image both my C: drive and data drive using Backupper Pro. System images monthly. Data images weekly.
