this is the 2nd time this happened. user on a standalone windows 10 PC applies updates with account 'user'. After reboot, enters password on login screen. Screen flashes and goes to lock screen. Trying to log in from lock screen again loops you back to lock screen.
If we log in with 'admin' account (a rarely used account), we get a welcome .... fall creator's edition.... a page with some choices about yes ./ no to personalized ad and things work OK for that user.
(seems the account that was the one that installed the update is the one that gets gummed up / locked).
What I did last time (3 weeks ago?) was created a 3rd account. logged into that account and then restored / rolled back / uninstalled receent updates. then in that 3rd account, reapplied patches, etc and things were OK for that and the user account was fine.
Now weeks later,m user gets message about wanting to apply uipdates, reboots (when logged in as the 'user' account) and again, is locked out.
I guess I can roll back the updates etc. but it's a pain.
any thoughts on why the account gets locked? (when logging in as user fails, we log in with admin and it shows that user is logged in (the user login was successful but then immedialtely locks before it gets to that ad settings page...)
