Chrome requesting (and failing) Windows Account Logon (Windows 10 64bit) 0 Recommended Answers 4 Replies 10 Upvotes
Windows 10 64bit
In Windows event log (Security log), repeatedly getting Event ID 4625. The information for this seems to suggest that Chrome is trying to logon to my Windows account (which is a local account, not a Microsoft account) - and failing due to unknown user name or bad password.
See attached details from Event Viewer.
This raises two issues:
1. Most importantly, why is Chrome instigating a logon to my local account (especially when it is already running in that local account)?
2. Why is it failing anyhow?
I thought it might be failing due to the password being null (I did not enter a password when installing Windows 10). So I created a password and rebooted. Then the status changes from 0XC000006E (Unknown user name or bad password) to 0XC000006D (Bad username or authentication information) with a sub-status of 0xC000006A (User logon with misspelled or bad password).
Anyone got any ideas?
I'd add that everything appears to work OK regardless.
