Windows 7: Logged in as temporary user

ran a repair on a computer that ran into some trouble with booting after a recent power out
the ntoskrnl.exe file was corrupt so I copy/pasted it from a windows 7 dvd after trying startup repair several and setting the proper disk(s) as active.

the "system" partition appeared to be empty just so you know.

Now the system starts just as it should with one problem. I'm only getting logged in as a temporary user, even after creating a new administrator account and while booting into safe mode.

EDIT: I also notice that under windows activation it says status not available... why might this be? It was fully activated and the like about a week ago. The computer is running much slower than normal as well.

That's because you did something Windows 7 thinks of as being illegal.

The ntoskrnl.exe is NEVER (or nearly never) really corrupt. It is the process that is mentioned in a crash which most probably was caused by a faulty driver or maybe faulty HW. One should never "just" copy single system files.

The only thing I can think of here to repair is to go back to a restore point.
If that is not an option... a repair install
Ir that is not an option either.... clean install.

Post back if you need help on those steps please...

This happened during a repair install.
Clean install wasn't possible.
Turns out the HDD was on it's way out. File after file was becoming corrupted.
Turns out the person who brought me the computer had it directly next to their Subwoofer... put simply "user error" lol
