1] Empty contents of NGC Folder

First, boot Windows 10 into Safe Mode.

You need to delete all the contents of the NGC Folder – for that you will need to take ownership of this folder first-

C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\

Once done, just permanently delete all the contents of that folder and reboot your computer normally.

The AppData folder might be hidden so you may need to show hidden files & folders.

This policy setting allows you to control whether a domain user can sign in using a convenience PIN. If you enable this policy setting, a domain user can set up and sign in with a convenience PIN. If you disable or don’t configure this policy setting, a domain user can’t set up and use a convenience PIN. Note: The user’s domain password will be cached in the system vault when using this feature. To configure Windows Hello for Business, use the Administrative Template policies under Windows Hello for Business.

This will turn on the Logins using PIN. Setting the radio button as Disabled or Not Configured will turn off the Logins using PIN.

Exit the Group Policy Editor and then reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
