To fix this problem, follow the following steps:

Option 1: If you have a second administrator account on the PC that you can sign into, please do so and install the latest Windows 10 update, released on August 31st, 2016.  After installing the update, reboot the PC and you should be able sign in successfully on your other account.

Option 2: Use the “go back” feature to uninstall the Anniversary Update.  Once removed, you can re-install using the Windows Update Assistant by going to the Windows 10 download page and clicking the Update Now button.
There are two methods to uninstall the Anniversary Update:
