    2. Type services.msc and click on OK.
    3. Look for Windows Biometric Service, double click on it and click on Stop.

    5. After taking a backup of the files, delete all the files.
    6. Now, open Services by following step 1 and 2, and restart the Windows Biometric Service.
    7. Go to Start >> Settings >> Accounts >> Sign-in options and register the Face data again.

    Hello Face Currently Unavailable

    Hi,

    I have recently updated my surface pro 7, My hello face sign in was working however occasionally wouldn't register, so I went back into the settings and tried to enhance the facial recongintion as suggested by redoing the face scan. This failed as it was
    saying for me to position my face in the centre of the frame and hold still however never manaed to register my face.

    I then decided to remove the face sign in and redo from the start. As soon as I pressed remove it became unavailable.

    I have searched for updates which I am fully up to date with.

    This is what I get when I click on the option
