Something happened to my windows 10 Pin. I've followed all the standard things to reset, to delete and re create the /NGC directory, create new account, etc.
I hate this. I just want to have control over my own PC again. It's at home. Not corporate. But now I have to have this damn PIN and a Microsoft account.  I just want my old admin account and password again but have found no ways to disable all this nannying.

Beyond that, I go to set up a new PIN. And have the /NGC folder visible and I watch the OS attempt to create a PIN but then it disappears again.  Unable to save.

Informatively Microsoft says "something went wrong and we weren't able to set up your PIN" I'll say. Just stop already!
