Setting up sql server on latop -- getting error Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error

I installed SQL Server on my laptop (windows 8).  When I try to connect to the database engine i get the following error

"Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error"

Why?
Microsoft SQL Server 2008

Try running SSMS as an administrator to see if the message goes away.

Edit:  My thought is an issue with it not passing an admin token.
