I recently upgraded my HP laptop from windows 7 t 8.1. Shortly after the update, I realize that my local account (which is the same email address user that I use for my desktop computer with 8.1 too) does not have administrator rights on this laptop.
My problem is, when I try and change the user account settings for this local user, and every time I try and make a change that requires administrator rights, I am prompted for a smart card.
I never registered a smart card with this computer as an administrator. I also can only view administrator profile when I run safe mode.
Any suggestions? Also... if I log in to the administrator account in safe mode, how do I change that account so a smart card is not the primary prompt?
