Use your Windows password to access the desktop.
 

If you do not know your Windows password, reset by using an alternate administrative account or contact your internal IT department for assistance. Windows passwords cannot be determined by enrolled biometrics.

 

If you are unable to log into Windows because you have your Authentication Type set to either ‘Biometric Only’ or ‘Password AND Biometric’ you will need to disable Secure Windows Login from within Safe Mode to allow Windows login using your Windows password.

 

To disable Secure Windows Login from Safe Mode:
 

  1. Boot your machine and press F8 to enter Safe Mode.
  2. Continue pressing F8 until the Boot Options screen appears.
  3. Select Safe Mode (not Safe Mode with Networking) and allow Windows to load.
  4. Enter the Windows username and password. If you do not have a Windows password set, leave it blank and select ‘Enter’ key.
  5. Once you are at the desktop, open the EMBASSY Security Center.
  6. Navigate to the Windows Login tab.
  7. Remove the check mark next to ‘Enable Secure Windows Login’ and select Apply.
  8. Exit and Reboot into Windows normally.

 

Remove invalid biometrics.
 

Locate the UCS2.0 folder and rename it to UCS2.0_old. The UCS folder will be located at the following path:

 

 

Clear the fingerprints from the Fingerprint Reader using the following process:

 

  • Download the DeleteUsers Utility: DeleteUsers.zip and unzip the files to your desktop. 
    If you cannot click on the link, copy and paste it to your browser window.
  • Double click DeleteUsers.exe to run the utility. You will see a list of users who currently have fingerprints enrolled on the fingerprint device.
  • Double click a user to delete all fingerprints currently saved on the fingerprint device for that user.
  • Repeat the process for additional users.
  • Reboot.
     

(Optional) Re-enroll your biometrics, select "Enable Secure Windows Login" and select Apply.
