Went into safe mode with command prompt, typed in Dism /online /Get-Packages /Format:Table > C:\patches.txt. System sent back another command line.

Restarted, F8

Chose Repair My Computer (to see is something different might happen)
This time, got system recovery options screen
Chose startup repair: nothing
Chose system restore: no restore points
Chose command prompt. Typed in same code as above: system just sent back another command line.
do Dism /online /Get-Packages /Format:Table > C:\patches.txt
in safe mode. then post c:\patches.txt

Built in administrator account is already ACTIVE? And working?

So you use only ms office, internet explorer and some win7 built-in applications? Not a lot settings you have changed. Correct?

All your document are in "my documents" (and its subfolders)? And "my pictures" and "my music" etc? So not spread all around the harddrive?

C:\users\[youraccount] has these subfolders (and more)
Desktop=>what's on your desktop
Documents=>your documents
Downloads=>your downloads
Favorites=>your internet explorer favorites
Links=>favorite folders show in top left of "file explorer"
Music=>your music
Pictures=>your pictures
Videos=> you video's

Why not simple create a new user account? Afterwards move what's in those folders to the new user account?

Don't forget to delete the old username and its files after a few weeks!

There is one interesting that has happened. Just to check, I chose safe mode, then chose my profile and tried to log in. Surprisingly, I was able to log in. Feeling optimistic, I started windows normally and tried to login. Unfortunately, I still received the message "the user profile service failed the logon.user profile cannot be loaded"

That's a good idea, but can I do that while in safe mode?

Code:
net   user   administrator   /active:yes
net   user   administrator   AnyPasswordYouWantAndDontForget
Have you done that already in safe mode?
After that login to user administrator with the correct password

The built-in administror account is for troubleshooting only! So logon normally with that name and create a new user account with admin rights. then logon as that user.
