Permission issues / Pin not working

Hi there,

Today I've got a strange issue on my machine.
The screen saver started and when I went back to my PC I couldn't resume it.
I had no choice but switch off the computer
When I restarted I checked the event viewer and I noticed this
The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {2593F8B9-4EAF-457C-B68A-50F6B8EA6B54}

I then noticed that I couldn't sync in Microsoft Edge anymore. When I tried, I got this error
Something went wrong and your PIN isn't available

You can reset your PIN by going to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options


In the sign-in options there isn't any PIN option but I see a Password option where I can change it.

I'm a little lost as the password in the sign-in options refers to my PC whereas the password in Microsoft Edge is related to my outlook account.

Any idea how to fix this?

For the record, I'm using Windows 10 Pro, 1909 build 18363.900

Edit: Actually, I can't even sync my Sticky Notes or any other Microsoft app connected through my outlook profile.
