Windows 7: Cannot access accounts other then the built-in Administrator

Cannot access accounts other then the built-in Administrator

Title says all. I've enabled the built-in Administrator account. However, I can no longer access my other account (which is also an Admin account). I even tried creating another account, which also cannot be accessed.

Basically: upon login, I get the login screen, however there's only one account, which is the Administrator account. There is a 'switch user' button, which just shows the 'Other Users', which doesn't do anything: entering any account details only says 'invalid username or password'.

The first account was created BEFORE I enabled the admin account; the user folder is still there. However, the new account I created has no user folder.

Help?

Are you trying to add an account using "Admin" or "Administrator" as the user name?

New account doesn't have a user folder, because you never logged on under that account... quite normal.
