  1. Asking for (forgotten) password when I usually use a PIN


    After the latest windows update I ran into an error (memory management : rapportKE64(.sys I think) )

    It's trying to boot into the automatic system recovery but it's asking for my password, there is no option to change to PIN like in the usual Windows login.

    I have a bootable USB stick with Ubuntu on it so I can get access to the HDD.

    Is there any way to get the input changed to a PIN instead?

    forgotten pin

    Hi,

    I'm going around in circles here.

    I want to download Windows Draw.

    I'm asked for my PIN - I have absolutely no memory of ever setting a PIN.

    I click on "I have forgotten my PIN"

    I'm asked to sign In, but I am already signed in.

    My contact phone number has changed so that won't work.

    I go to the site suggested;

    I'm asked for my PIN - I have absolutely no memory of ever setting a PIN.

    I click on "I have forgotten my PIN"

    I'm asked for details of my age etc.

    An automated response come back saying I haven't provided the right data!

    I still want to download Windows Draw.

    Argghhhhh
