Hello, Long story short, i changed the settings on 'netplwiz', and made the account 'Homegroupuser$' an administrator, and removed the administrator privileges for the account i use. now i cant access any administrative settings. Please any help will be appreciated.
Thanks

In Start, click Power, hold down Shift, and click on "Restart." You will reboot to the Advanced Startup Options menu. Go to safe mode. Open netplwiz again and set your account as administrator from there. You can also try opening an elevated command prompt by typing "CMD" in Start, right clicking on the first option, and selecting "Run as administrator." In the new command prompt that appears, enter:

net user administrator /active:yes

This should open up a new built-in administrator account.
