From which OS did you upgrade? You might have to reapply the security settings of your local MSSQL server.

If only I knew ... 8.0 to 8.1 should not have that effect, but maybe it is because the Microsoft Online accounts are more tightly integrated now.
If noone comes up with a better idea, you can do a repair install of MSSQL. That way you will fix authentication issues, but there might be a more direct way.

Make sure the default db for that login is set and that it actually exists.

--NOTE: this code only works if this is a Windows User login, NOT a Windows Group login.
ALTER LOGIN [Ethan\EngTeng] WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE = master
