Windows 10 Delete Fingerprint Data

How to remove fingerprints from Windows 10

If you ever delete an account from Windows 10 BUT FORGET to FIRST delete all the fingerprint data belonging to that account, the fingerprint data stays forever in that specific device. The only way you can create another account and use your fingerprints to login again is to get new fingerprints. 8*)

But there is a fix! Following the threads all afternoon I eventually came across this thread on Microsoft’s support blog. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/93a122ff-3455-4b29-b3e8-2b72d49d19e3/windows-81-delete-all-fingerprint-data?forum=w81previtpro

DELETE C:\Windows\System32\WinBioDatabase\[GUID].DAT file and then restart the computer.

I had to boot into a Linux partition to get enough “administrator rights” to delete the files, but once deleted I could once more use the fingerprint functionality.

 


Bios Time Windows vs. Everyone Else

locked-computer-cartoonWindows stores time on the BIOS clock as Local Time, while other systems use UTC time. This means if you dual boot Windows with another system the clock will be messed up. Windows can be told to use UTC in the BIOS clock by a registry edit.

Add the key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
“RealTimeIsUniversal”=dword:00000001
