If your Windows was preinstalled, the password has probably never been
established. Try leaving the password field blank.

Consider logging on with an administrator account and then visiting the
Windows Update site. Once the updates are completed, log off and go back to
using your everyday account.

Hi Michael,

There are several solutions to this issue, most of which revolve around
having a third party firewall running in addition to the native one.
