NatWest has 7.5 million personal banking customers.
The bank did not say how many people had been affected across the group, but Ulster Bank said that 100,000 of its customers had been affected by "a major technical issue".
"We are working hard to minimise the impact and will ensure that those who are affected do not suffer any financial loss," Ulster Bank said in a statement.
Up to 12 million Natwest and Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE: RBS.L - news) customers are still unable to pay bills, move money or get their salaries after a computer glitch froze their bank accounts.
Technical issues with its computers has now meant that payments in or out of accounts had not been made since Wednesday evening.
The underlying technical issue has now been resolved, according to a source within RBS.
However the inconvenience to customers is likely to continue throughout Friday as staff try to clear the backlog.
The weekend will provide a breathing space to update payments in and out of accounts, although there is no guarantee that everything will be back to normal by Monday.
Natwest said that an "update was imminent" but that there was still problems with its system that has prevented customers from getting up-to-date balance and from making payments.

I'm a Natwest customer and having seen this on the news I went into my branch to check money and so on.
I got paid today and wanted to put some in my savings account and obviously (as everyone else has experienced) nothing was showing on my current account.
I was £10 away from going over my overdraft and had to draw money out for food etc etc..... so I am now over my overdraft.
The lady assured me that although "technically" I would be over my overdraft I would not actually be charged as they are "Guaranteeing" that no customers are "out of pocket" because of this.
Having seen more on the news and read some things online.... I am thinking I should have taken my money (savings account) out and kept it at home.
She said that although the money isn't showing up in the account, they can still access it if people come into the branch....
She had to look and check that I regularly get paid on (or around) this date.... having seen that I do, she then let me have my money.
This seems a little odd and if it's not sorted by Monday, I will be emptying my account.
