ASP.NET Machine Account keeps asking for a password when downloading apps

I don't know why this started but I was trying to update Unity on my computer when I was prompted with the "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your computer" pop-up but this time it asked me for a password that I do not have. I've had this computer for 4+ years, bought it brand new, and was never asked for an ASP.NET Machine Account password. I tried my regular computer password and my computer pin but neither worked. Every solution that I've found, has failed because all of the solutions require me to access settings that I need the password to access.
I can't update my apps, I can't download new apps, and I can't access any important settings, I'm not really sure what to do about this situation.

I have a Windows 10 computer, I don't know if that helps but I thought I would add that here
