My HP client security manager finger print stopped working on Internet Explorer

HP Recommended
Elitebook 840 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought this new laptop last month (less than a month old). I set up the finger print function, using 2 fingers. They worked fine at the beginning on Internet Explorer - which is where I need the finger print to work for log-ins. However, in the last week or so: (1) the 'index' finger is no longer recognised even to log-in to the laptop at start-up. When I tried to enrol it, I got the message 'this finger is already enrolled'; and (2) I no longer see the HP Client Security 'icon' on Internet Explorer when I want to log-in to any of the usual websites that I regularly use. I tried everything, including 'restart' the laptop, but it still doesn't show. I don't know whether a recent Windows update caused this. I would appreciate any help. I really don't want to start remembering the many passwords that I have to use every time I log-in to a website.

I would suggest you to Windows 10 Settings - > Home Settings - > Sign-In Options - > And then Clear Fingerprints.


And then once all are cleared then open Client Security Manager.


And re-enroll the Fingerprint.
