    Picture password problem


    I was creating a picture password and it went through all the steps and it showed "There was a failure during the enrollment process"

    What should I do?

    Sfc scannow did not find any integrity violations

    I tried system restore but that did not work. All the default windows app were blank. When I clicked it showed your developer license has expired. Please renew it. So I restored back again. Any idea why it would have showed up?

    Still I am unable to use pic password

    Note: I created another account and tried to use pic password but still I cant create one

    I have one more point.

    when I performed system restore I could not launch even one app. It showed developer license expired but when I reverted back it was solved.
    what is the meaning of this?

    For the time being I do not want to use refresh,reset option

    After updating windows yesterday I have got the picture password problem again.
    Did the updates had anything to do with security features.
    What can I do??

    Hello Manjunath,

    You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before the Windows Updates may sort it.

    If so, then only install one update at a time to see which one may be the culprit. Be sure to create a restore point before installing each update to be sage though.

    In that case, you might remove the picture password, and create another one to see if that may help.
