    Why can't I log into my user account?

    I've had no problem logging into my user account since I've had Windows 8 set up about a month or so ago. Just yesterday morning it was working fine, but now whenever I go to my user account and put in my password it says:

    "Windows couldn't connect to the Windows All-User Install Agent Service. Please consult your system administrator."

    Right now I am on the Administrator account, is there anyway I can fix this on my own?

    I have not dealt with this problem, but a google search for the first sentence of the quoted error message returned many hits with possible solutions, including this one:

    windows couldn't connect to the windows all-user install agent - Microsoft Community

    Whenever I get an explicit error message from anything the first thing I do is search for the whole thing in google, 99% of the time I find a solution or explanation lickety-split.
