I can't change any user password, or add any user because windows blocks me (the password doesn meet the password policy requirements).
I've already tried:
any complex password
group edit security policy: no password complexity set; minimum password age 0 days
gpupdate /force
sfc /scannow (to avoid any system file damage issue)

any other thing to try?
Thank you!
