Try this ...

In the run menu type control userpasswords2.
Just press WIN + R to get the RUN menu.
The user accounts windows will now open up.
Look for the option saying " Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer " and uncheck this option and press "OK".
Now a windows opens up asking you to enter the current password you use to log in to Windows 7. Enter the password and confirm. Done!.

Oh I see.

You could just reinstall over the old install and then restore from it. You won't lose any files...
