    Cannot login as admin

    I am trying to troubleshoot my system and am having difficulties logging in as admin. I am attempting to login as admin and it refuses to allow me access with the correct password. I just changed the password and it works to login to outlook but not as admin to troubleshoot. I am going through this process as defeat will not start. I already ran mfc scan which indicates no issues.

    Please assist. Why does my PW work for some things but not to login as admin?

    Welcome to the forum. Are you logging in with local account or Ms account. If it's Ms can you login with another account then run something as admin. If you changed your password the network must be up to get updated details by logging in with another account it ensures network is up
