    The Security Accounts Manager  (SAM) is a database file in the Microsoft Windows operating system (OS) that contains usernames and passwords.

    Never delete this key: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\SamConnectedAccountsExist
    Local Security Authority protection: Windows11 will crash if you delete the above key.

    Value should be 1 (Hex) enabled.
