Autologon locked me out from admin privileges

Hello,

I recently downloaded Autologon v.3.10 in order to automatically log on my windows 10 local account. It seems my account was not on admin users group (although I didn't have any issues at all before enabling autologon) and now every time I log on windows 10 I have a restricted user account. I am not able to open any app or service which requires admin priveleges.
I cannot change my privileges or enable the admin account as I have denied access.
I have tried to press Shift key in order to disable temorarily autologon upon startup and be asked my credentials. After inserting the password same happens, my account turned into a restricted account and I am completely out of everything.

Any ideas?
Thank you

You may try to boot windows into advanced startup troubleshooting & recovery mode. Either by windows installation disc or USB or just restarting the computer a few times while at the windows loading screen.

Troubleshoot > Command Prompt will open a console for you.

You can either add your user to the Administrators group or create a new user with admin privileges (if that software changes it every time).

First, check your exact Username with:

 net user

Then add it to the Administrators group:

 net localgroup Administrators yourusername /add

Create backup admin user:

 net user yourusername password /add
 net localgroup Administrator yourusername /add

I hope it works for you.
