Windows 7: Lock screen instantly on login!

Lock screen instantly on login!

Hello all,
(Disclaimer, I am a complete windows 7 noob, I've been a mac user my whole life but just switched to windows)
Whenever I log into Windows 7 the computer is sending me directly to the "computer locked" login screen instantly, as soon as I enter my password it sends me right back to the lock screen again. This repeats infinitely. I have looked for similar problems on the internet and can not seem to find anyone else that seems to be suffering from this problem.
It works fine in safe mode though. I ran a virus scan with Windows Defender and it couldn't find anything. I tried doing a system repair from the f8 boot prompt, that didn't work. I've exhausted all my efforts and I still cant seem to find a way to fix this. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm in dire need of some halp from someone who knows what they are doing. Because I sure as hell don't. If you need any more detailed info about my system i'll be happy to provide it.

It is case sensitive. Check your keyboard that you didn't have CAP LOCK.

It logs me in just fine, but then after it gets to the desktop it will throw me back to the locked screen. It did it for the frist time right after I had been disconnected from World of Warcraft, probably a coincidence, but maybe the two are related....

Did you have any virus?

Did you try to remove password?

Do you have Window Recover Disc? Try run it. Your logon file in OS is missing.

I just ran a definition update and ran another virus scan, no viruses found. This is really irritating me.

What window do you have? It seems the file responsible for logon is missing in OS. You can run the Window Recovery Disc, it will reinstall that missing file and everything will be okay.

Go there, download the Window Recovery Disc. Burn as .iso disc image to a DVD. During bootup, press F2/Delete/F12 or whatever to go into BIO. Go to Boot tab. Find Boot Priority, choose CD-rom as 1st boot. Save and exit. After run, go back to bio and change to previous setting.
