Windows 7: Network Group Policies Help: Need to add Local User

Network Group Policies Help: Need to add Local User

I had a network guy come in and he locked a lot of my group policies out. It shows that the Administrator account is locked and disabled. I need to get into this computer and it is urgent. I have tried enabling the administrator account doing net user administrator /active:yes and it said it was successful but I still had no effect. When you restart the computer it goes back to disabled
If I go to add a local user to the policy and it doesn't show. Tried adding any form of administrator user and when you restore it says that the administrator account is locked. Also when you restart it shows the administrator account disabled.

The computer refuses to add any users to the local group. Is there anyway I can add one so I can fix this laptop that a dumbass network guy set up without a restore.

This all had to be done through CMD as well.......

If you help me I will love you long time
Thanks,
Justin

I would think the network IT guy did that for a reason and if their policy is to lock out the admin account they want it that way. I would suggest you call the IT guy with an explanation as to why you need it and perhaps he will make an exception.

\What exactly do you need to do anyway?
