Windows 7: I can't login to my user account! Help!

Yes, I have instalation DVD.

Yes I was able. When I go to system restore, it looks like it is processing for about a second and then that window closed and other window with that message pop out. Yes I logged as user with admin rights (that is only situation where my PC don't crash when I try to acces to admin acc).

I think that backuping all data and reinstalling Windows maybe solve my problem

cd  \windows\system32
ren  sethc.exe  sethc.exe.old
copy  cmd.exe  sethc.exe
Now reboot machine normally.
On logon screen press SHIFT-key 5 times. Now a command prompt appears. Now you can activate built in admin account.
Code:
Net user administrator  /active:yes
Now reboot again and you can login as user administrator.

You can rename sethc.exe.old to sethc.exe when everything has been fixed.
Net user administrator /active:no
That disables the administartor account
Both can be done in win7
Did you do this?

Reinstalling windows isn't necessary at all!! Win7 works. Limited user acoount works. Only the self made admin acoount is hanging/freezing or corrupt.

Do it from within recovery environment->command prompt. So Boot tapping F8 and select "repair your computer" lthen logon as the admin user then "command prompt"

Man thanks A LOT!! I used first method and it works, I actived that Admin acc (even I have some problems because it was my first time doing something like this in CMD, firstly I didn't get how to type, shell I type it all in one line or to press enter after every row, but it works fine now). Now I can install programs and change settings property, I will transform all data to ex Standard user acc and delete ex Admin acc.
AGAIN THANKS A LOT MAN

I told you how to do it in post #7. Next time read carefully what is written.
Did you check "system restore" settings? Disable System Restore in Windows 7 - How-To Geek is the instructions. Enable it instead of disable!!
