    hello was just wondering if this is normal behaviour for windows 10 does not happen all the time just once in a while.
    get a little popup like the one when you have a display driver crash. asking to verify user and brings up box to put pin or password in. is this normal

    I'm not sure about what you mean by the "like the one when you have a display driver crash" but windows does ask you to verify your id sometimes. It takes you to the "Manage your account" screen in settings and you have to enter your pin.

    Is that what you mean? If so, yes it is normal. It happens if I boot my windows on another machine and lots of SP3 users have get it also.

    Well that happens on my wife's PC also - one day in 5 perhaps she has to put in her MS Id and password for OneDrive (even though she always signs on with MS account).

    Not sure if it is normal (seems like a bug) but both happen to me....

    I never worried about it until you mentioned it. Perhaps I should
