Windows 7: Unjoin Domain - Drops Local Admin Accounts

Unjoin Domain - Drops Local Admin Accounts

Problem: When disconnecting the system from domain the system will not allow me to log in as the another user whom is a Admin on the system and even the local administrator that has no admin rights. I cant access run, properties to the system settings, device manger etc. Because I disconnect from the network I cant log in anymore with an Admin account.

Background: I have made a backup of the system so I can return it to a state that Im still on the network as far as the computer thinks, allowing me to login as myself and do any Admin stuff I need to do. It is not plug in to the network to duplicated the name on the network. But I delete all the GroupPolicy in the ApplicationData  Microsoft Folder which house the GroupPolicy, even read an article on the net with RegEdit
You can clear policy settings by removing the following (usual disclaimer about backing up your registry) from the PC in question:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects
Where CU would be the user's registry tree

Still I unjoin it and the accounts local admin and another user whom is an admin not have admin right when I disjoin it from the Domain. I double check to make sure that admin accounts are in the system correct still no go.
Any thoughts on how to fix this?
