Here's my trouble shooting guide to fixing this problem, it covers:

  • Is your machine connected to a domain or work group?
  • Are you logged in as a local Administrator?
  • Was PowerShell launched as 'Administrator'?
  • Is your password blank?
  • Are you trying to connect to a SharePoint farm?
  • Is your Server hosted/managed by a Hosting company?
  • Are you using VirtualBox?
  • Are you running the command on a computer where the language is not set to English?
