Go to "Settings", "Accounts", "Sign-in options" and see if you have "Windows Hello" enabled. If so, turn it off. Then run netplwiz again.

Start regedit, expand and highlight "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\PasswordLess\Device" and see if "DevicePasswordLessBuildVersion" in the right window is set to 2. If so, double-click it and change it to zero. Then try netplwiz again.

Please note that if the checkbox comes back on netplwiz, you have to uncheck it and click "OK".
