My development machine was rebooted after a windows update recently and now I can't access my admin account.
I never reboot my machine except when forced by WU so I actually don't know if the problem is related to WU. Don't remember when I last used the admin account but it is probably a week or 2 ago.
Normally I run in a normal user account and keep an admin command prompt open to deal with admin tasks.
What happens now is:
If I do something that triggers the UAC and enter user ".\admin" and password I get the message
Logon failure: unknown user or bad password
If I do
RUNAS /user:.\admin cmdI get the message
RUNAS ERROR: Unable to acquire user password
Any idea what the problem is?
It is not a big problem since I can call in a domain admin but I am curious about what has happened and why UAC and RUNAS show different error messages.
