I am getting the error, "ORA-12560: TNS:Protocol adaptor error."

This is usually due to a setting in your sqlnet.ora. If you see a line in your sqlnet.ora file (located in ORACLE_HOMEnetworkadmin) like this:

 SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NTS)

then you should try commenting that line out and try again. If you don't see that line, try adding it and see if that changes your outcome.
