I used to use a domain user with administrator rights on my Windows 10 machine. (to be clear, on the active domain it's just a regular user, but I had it in the 'administrator group' on my local machine)
To be more secure, what I did a while back is create a 2nd new user (a local Windows user), gave that new admin rights, and removed my regular user (my domain user) from the Administrators group.
So when I need to install something or access certain settings, I get prompted for an admin user, I enter my local admin user in the user/password Window, and run the installer (or access settings) as a local administrator.
This seemed to be working ok, but recently I started having this issue where I can no longer install anything. I'm not getting any permissions error or any error at all. The installation just completely stalls in the middle and never completes.
This has happened with at least 3-4 applications now.
Is there something wrong with my method (of using a local admin user account's creds to run installers, while I'm logged in as a regular domain user to the PC)?
