Windows 10: Can't log in to my PC Solved

  1.    02 Mar 2016 #1

    Can't log in to my PC


    "Security policies on this computer are set to show info about the last interactive sign-in, but Windows couldn't retrieve that info. Contact your network administrator for help."

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: I logged into Safe Mode and used the Group Policy editor to change "Display information about previous logons during user logon" from Not Configured to Disabled.

    I also ran 'gpupdate /force' in CMD.

    Not sure which one worked but it's sorted now.

    In Windows 10 PRO, in the search bar, type gpedit.
    Navigate to
    Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Windows Logon Options

    Click image for larger version.

    I have windows 10 Home. I have installed gpedit also. But I don't find "Display information about previous logons during user logon" in that option.
    But I find Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Terminal services>Client>Do not allow passwords to be saved. Not configured is present option. It has enabled and disabled.
    For me my laptop starts ok if internet modem is off. It works with internet when laptop is on and then modem is switched on.
    I also ran 'gpupdate /force' in CMD as admin. It shows ok. Still I have above problem. Any solution welcome,

    @Ivgandhi,
    The OP of this thread has marked it "solved". Please start a new thread yourself, and reference this one in it. That way it will be unsolved, and appear in the list of unanswered threads. You will get more exposure/help that way.
    Thanks.

    I have already started a thread. Here I posted only to get clarification from original poster or any one else who has similar thinking.
