  1. Double Trouble Local account User disappeared after clicking on "Forgot Pin" on a Microsoft...


    When I accidentally clicked on Forgot Pin, it showed that User Profiles service failed the sign in. It wasn't a big deal for me because I knew the pin, but it will become a big deal if you forget the pin. Worse to come, My dad's local and only user disappeared. His user data is still saved, and Settings and Control Panel say that his user exists as if nothing happened. Is there a way to fix User Profile service and reverse the disappearing of the local user?

    :)
