Windows 10: User account disabled

    User account disabled

    On the login screen, I see my username and photo. I enter my pin, but then it tells me "This user cannot login because this account is disabled." If I enter my password instead, it tells me the password is wrong. I've tried rebooting into Safe Mode and checking the users (it was disabled, but "locked out" was grey and unchecked). I re-enabled it, logged out, then logged in successfully (still in Safe Mode). I rebooted the computer, and now it's locked out again. WTF?!

    Unfortunately, I could not figure out a remedy for this, so I had to do another fresh install of Windows 10. If anyone else has any solutions to this problem, short of what I did, post here so others may find it.
