ASP.NET machine account is administrator
Posted on 2016-09-27
I have a Windows 10 computer in which the "administrator" is the ASP.NET machine account.
This ASP.NET machine account prompts for a password when admin rights are needed (adding/removing programs, etc).
The ASP.NET machine account should never be the "administrator" so, obviously, something has gone wrong.
Since this password isn't known I'm wondering, realistically, what the options are.
Do we simply write off the machine and reinstall W10? How can I do that? This computer came with 8 and was upgraded.
