Windows 7: Blank screen with cursor only one user?

Blank screen with cursor only one user?

I just did a Windows 7 Anytime upgrade from Professional x64 to Ultimate x64. Now, when I log in under my primary user, I get a blank white screen. I can access the system by hitting shift 5 times and opening explorer. When I log in to a different user, I do not get this issue.

To troubleshoot, I tried going into msconfig and disabling all non-microsoft services, with no success. I believe this issue may have occurred during a windows update of just a language display.

I tried doing a system restore, but still have the same issue...

Looks like a corrupted user profile

Is it possible there is another way to resolve this? I may have applications only installed for this user. How would I fix that?

Is this useful?

Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.

but those are just shortcuts...if they're not automatically transfered with the desktop you just have to create them for the new user by hand

hat just means that those keys were still in use and now since the hive was unloaded, those programs might not function properly until the next boot.
