Windows 7 Logs in a temp profile...

I am currently having a lot of problems with this computer. I first had some pretty bad viruses that I finally removed yesterday that had not enabled me to open any application files. I log in today and now I can only lo in as a temporary user. I can not even access the command prompt. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I tried restartin as well as logging off to no avail.

Format the partition to kill the virus, then re-install win 7. It is the only way you can be sure to have removed them.
