Windows 7: 'Your user account has been disabled'

Windows 7 Home Premiun 64 bit
 
 
'Your user account has been disabled'

So I got a new desktop computer, and a User account was already set up for me. So when I got it I did some software installing, anti virus, malwarebytes, windows updates. Had to do some restarts for the Windows updates and all is still well. Then added a password to my user account, and had some more Windows updates, although some weren't critical ones, just recommended. The pc needed to restart again, so I restart. Now when I turn on my pc, Windows will load and show a screen that says "Your account has been disabled. Please contact your system administrator." I click Ok underneath it and it goes to a log in screen with two options. First is Administrator. It requires a password. It's not the one I set up. The second option is Other User. That one I can click, type in my user account name and password and that works. So I can get into my computer ok. But I would really like to get rid of that Account has been disabled message and make it so only my User account shows up at the log in screen. I thought about trying a system restore to a time before it started happening. Would that get rid of Windows updates, if that is the cause? Any other suggestions?

Thank you

A system restore to an earlier point would probably work too. Just make sure that you do not install the buggers again - just "hide" them.
