I am receiving this error on my production "serverSQL Server failed to communicate with filter daemon launch service  (Windows error: The service did not start due to a logon failure.
). Full-Text filter daemon process failed to start. Full-text search functionality will not be available."

I know how to add and or change the password on the login tab of the properties of the service.   But the username for this service is an NT Service account and with the Admin account, I seem not to be able to have access to change the password on this account.  So I have just three questions. (I think)

1) Why would this happen to an NT user account?
2) Can I change the password on an NT user account?
3) If I cannot change the password, would it be possible to just use a domain user account, like the rest of the SQL services are using or do I have to use the NT account for this Service?

Thanks,

Rich
