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.
Microsoft has changed their position on encouraging users of the old Windows 7 and 8 to upgrade to the Windows 10 platform. Windows 10 will effectively be the “last” Windows as there will not be replacements, rather merely updates and upgrades as in Linux.

I run a nightly maintenance job on the computers in my lab to virus scan their Microsoft partitions and be sure their Linux partition is updated. The output goes into log files, which I want emailed to myself for review the next day so that I can fix any problems quickly.
