  1. log on problems


    I have had the same computer for many years never changed my password. Starting about two weeks ago I have been prompted to create a pin when I log on the only way around this is rebooting my computer sometimes more than once. Now starting today I cannot log in with out an internet connection. Again I have never changed my password and until recently never needed an internet connection to log on. When I go into my sign in options all the windows hello options are no used. I would like to permanently disable the "pin" request and be able to log on with out the internet or having to change my password. How do I do that?

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.

  3. MW2 Problem

    I think the game is booting, then Steam is trying to boot, but is hanging during the login process, hell it may be sitting there wait for you to enter your password.

    Try this, turn Steam On and log in. Click on the game listed in the "My Games" tab to start MW2 and see if the problem continues. If that does not work, you have 2 other suggestions above.
