Windows 7: The local session manager failed the logon

The local session manager failed the logon

Greetings, I am having an odd problem with my laptop. It's a dual boot with windows 7 ultimate and Ubuntu. The login password for each OS are different and have been working great for months and as of today they got switched somehow. After reboot i was getting incorrect passwords with both OS until i randomly tried to guess the password and the Windows password works with Ubuntu and the ubuntu password gives an error in windows - the local session manager failed the logon, the RPC server is unavailable.

Any suggestions?
