Re: Administrator Password from Standard Account - Update
I restored the system to 24hrs earlier and the problem has gone away. The
only change in that period (that I can remember) is a Windows Update, but if
I remember correctly, the update was just Defender definitions. So the casue
of the issue is still unknown, but at least I'm up and running.
