    Windows 10


    I used gpedit.msc to update the computer's turn on convenience key PIN sign-on from "Not Configured" to "Disabled" but disabling it didn't work. I expected it to override all accounts' abilities to use pins. I tested that a user could still sign on with a pin. I even rebooted and verified setting was still "Disabled" when I logged back in.


    This is a security problem because pins are easier to figure out than good passwords. I also figured out kids in the family are using this to get around family time limits by going into other peoples' accounts, so it isn't just hypothetical


    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Systems > Logon > Turn on convenience key PIN sign-in.


    Expected behavior: Changing to "Disabled" prevents users from logging on with pin.

    Actual behavior: Changing to "Disabled' has no effect.


    I also don't want to remove pins for certain family members from the Microsoft account. I just want to disable it from being used on this computer.

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.


    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:
