    “Press Windows Key + R and type regedit”

    How the hell are you suppose to do that when you can’t log in.

  2. For my personal computer, this happened after a set of updates was downloaded. I was unable to log in even from the physical keyboard. Restarting in safe mode “fixed” the issue by reminding the computer there were updates to be installed. After they installed, I was able to log in.

  3. Thank you. Just this week (late August 2019) my desktop that has:
    1) an unactivated version of Windows 10 pro (because the win 8/10 I had would not allow RDP) and
    2) some hack I downloaded to allow multiple RDP sessions
    … started displaying this error. At first I saw it in RDP but then saw that I could not log in from the keyboard.

    I followed the instructions here and was able to log in when the network cable was unplugged. I then added the D-word in current user. I plugged the cable back in and restarted. I was able to log in, but as I type now, I’m staring at a red screen. Hmm… maybe time to unplug the cable again

  4. Looking at recently installed programs, Google Chrome 8/26/2019 and GoToMeeting 8/25/2019 are the only recently installed updates, making Google Chrome the most likely culprit. Strange?

  5. Although this solved my issue, last night it came back. And the reg keys are already there and set to 10. So this solution is no longer working for me.

    I’m concerned I’m hacked or something.

  6. Even after making the changes in the registry of the Windows 10 Pro system , I’m facing the same problem…Kindly help….

  7. I am still having problems can only, login using safe mode, won’t let me login normally, it’s got to be done service not starting, as it’s works in safe mode, any help please

    1. I had to disable remote desktop in safe mode and then it allowed me to log in. Then I proceeded to update the system.

  8. Rebooted my laptop Dell (old) with Shiftkey and then Reboot. Then I could roll back to an older restore point (2 months back) and then was able to login. With the most recent restore point it did not work. Now I have to update again and hope it will not lead to the same problem. In any case I will edit the Registry.
    Any further help would be appreciated. This is the first time this happens and only on one out of 4 laptops!
