    Can't get in

    I was trying to get rid of the PIN that appears when booting win 10 2Hh2, so I used winaero tweaker but I must have checked the wrong option.

    Now it wants a username and the PIN but whatever I type is rejected for all the sign in options.

    How can I get remove the tweaker option or get past this?

    Thanks - rev

    1. Do not mess with the Windows login options unless you know exactly what you are doing first, and make sure you have an image backup that can be restored in case something goes wrong.

    2. Google

    Thanks dudes! I understand about the security issue.

    I managed to solve it as follows: Bootable USB > Repair your Computer > Troubleshoot > System Restore

    JDC: I've learned my lesson!

    Scroll down to and download the "Reflect 8 Free" version of Macrium Reflect: https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree

    Then get into the habit of making a weekly (monthly?) backup. Note that you can even be using the computer while it makes the backup.
