Symptom

You need to add a local administrator to your local machine with another local administrator

Cause

Policies are overwriting your settings every day

Solution

You can create the following batch file and run it:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\runas.exe /user:domain\localadmin /savecred  "c:\windows\system32\net.exe localgroup Administratoren domain\a-user /ADD"

You need to change domain for your domain. The localadmin has to be a domain account with local administrator rights and the user a-user will be added to the group of local admins.

The parameter /savecred will make it easy to add it to your autostart.
