"This all started after a Windows update. First I couldn't get the computer to power down, so I did it the hard way with the power button. Then the problems began when I tried booting up again. When I log in with my PIN, it first says "Preparing Windows..." which it never did before. Then it says "We can't sign into your account. This problem can be often fixed by signing out of your account and signing back in." That's puzzling right there, because I haven't signed in yet. I signed out of other computers I'm on and tried again. No luck."
