How do i fix my password so it doesnt reset?

For a while now i have had to log onto another account just to delete my password so i can access my desktop because everytime i turn off my computer, my password resets to something that i have never used before. Even if i change it to something else, once my computer turns off it completely resets to who knows what, this has become extremely annoying as i cannot always have access to my desktop. If anyone has a solution, please do tell me.

Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free (enable rootkit scanning too - Settings - Detection)

Then try a clean startup in case an app/service is interfering - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Run in elevated cmd:
sfc /scannow
