Hello,

I was forced to change my Admin password on the DC. Now, SharePoint no longer works! I managed to gain access to Central Administration after changing the password  in IIS and (the same new password practically everywhere else), but that's only temporary. When I click on any other page I get this error' -> 'Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. What can I do to resolve this issue?

Thanks
RW

The Admin account was probably used during installation of SharePoint so it is more than likely that all services are using this account, so when the passwords changes the services will not start during their next restart, which may have already happened.

Good that you can get to Central Admin. From Central Admin go to security settings and then manage accounts, (or similar wording.) From there you can reset the passwords of the various services. That should get you farm back up.

In the long run, you should create service accounts (per MS recommendations), and move away from using the Admin account.

Good luck...
