    Winows10 Pin Loop

    My father ran a chkdsk on his computer two days ago and now it is stuck in a pin loop. As soon as he inputs his pin, the screen immediately locks and prompts him to input his pin again. The longest period he's been able to work on the computer before being prompted for a pin is approximately 2 mins. I've had him do a restore to an earlier time and reset the PC but neither has worked. Has anyone else experienced this issue? My next course of action is a fresh Win10 install. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.
