Unable to log in with PIN

This is a Typical error that appears when logging in using a PIN. A small error message appears on the screen indicating that the PIN is no longer available; so what can we do? The answer is much simpler than you think.

How can I fix the error

The first thing to do to fix this is to log in with a administrator account; After that, you'll need to open a tab with Windows File Explorer or other alternatives to access the View menu. We will quickly enter the show or hide section, you will have to select the hidden items option.

After doing this, you can view the hidden files on your hard drive, there you will need to put the file C: windows ServiceProfile localServic AppData LocalMicrosoft. At this point you can enter the Ngc folder; this folder could be responsible for the annoying error that does not allow us to log in with our PIN.

How to fix the error from Ngc folder?

Everything changes if this folder is damaged, give it system updates. In this case, it will not allow us to access it, showing the access denied message; so what can we do in that case? We just have to right click on the folder and we will give another click on the properties.

Once this is shown, we will check the card for safety and then we will create a clip in the advanced options. Right there, the advanced security setup session will open and the folder permissions will be shown.

Being in that tab, we will examine the option of proprietario, this is at the top and we will click on the edit option that is shown there. This option will send us directly to another tab, being in it, we will click on the option types of the objects (we must make sure that all options are selected)

After all this process, we have to enter our username in the field that says the target name. After we have written our Windows user, we will click on verify name and make sure it is correct, then we will press accept.

Once these steps are done, it will send us automatically to the previous tab. By being there, the system should have already detected the change we made.
