    Hi,
    I was playing around with local group policy with smart card settings, and I checked "Force smart card login". I never set up smart card certificates to be used, and don't have any smart cards for it to work with. I need to login to the computer, but when I try, it says "You must insert a smart card to login". I am using the local administrator account, and tried a few ways to bypass it including;
    safe mode
    disabling smart card in BIOS
    remote desktop

    When I go home, I will try using ERD commander, and windows recovery console to stop the smart card service. BTW I am using TinyXP rev.05

    Thanks!
