1. HI Jon, You can use the same step mentioned above o fix this issue on a surface pro. Start the surface pro in safe mode and press Windows + R keys on your keyboard, type “regedit.exe” and click OK to open registry editor.

    To Start Surface pro in Safe Mode :
    Press and hold the volume-down button while you press and release the power button. When the Surface logo appears, release the volume-down button.
    select the language and keyboard layout you want when propmted > On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Press 4 to enable Safe Mode.
    Your Surface will then restart and boot into safe mode.

  2. Hi this something also happened in my Windows 8,I accidentally set my user credential as standard user and now every time I would want to change settings and also access some files, windows appear and require me login as administrator and to connect a smart card.

    I cannot anymore found any way to set my user-type as admin, I followed the steps above but I the scforceoption value cannot be modified, also I cannot find the gpedit.msc which I believe it doesnt really exist in my system.

    MAny thanks,
