    ·       (September 16, 2015) Microsoft has released KB3084905 which addresses an issue where the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) lockout occurs unexpectedly in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2.

    When this issue occurs, applications that depend on TPM won't function until you reset the TPM lockout.

    Note You can enter a 48 digit BitLocker recovery key to continue using the computer after TPM is locked out.
    Cause
    When the start command is received without a prior shutdown command, the lockout count increments. This causes the TPM lockout to occur if you turn on the device accidentally and repeatedly.
