Like I said you may have to do a clean install especially if it's not allowing the account to log into the system. I think someone else may have to step in and help here as short of
Doing a clean install i have run out of ideas on this one.

Still don't understand why you are using the command prompt net user command.
Can't you use Control Panel / User Accounts to create the new account?

I know we were discussing this in your other thread but I'd still like to understand what happe4ns when you do.

Well; what i am telling you may very well be the truth unless someone else that knows a way around this can add this to resolve the issue.

When I click on user accounts it goes to the page of the logged in user account and I can't click "Manage another account" because when I do nothing happens.
But I think only when logged in as admin/in safe mode.
For some reason when I'm logged in as admin or in safe mode I also can't create files so that might be part of the problem. Should I try from WinRE or would that account just be stored on the temporary X: drive?

If you have Administrator enabled, can you login to it from a normal boot?

I think we're going in circles here. May be time to bit the bullet, backup your data and do a repair install. If that doesn't fix it then do a clean install. Painful but it should resolve the problems.

Try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker in the safe mode command prompt. Post the results afterwards.

Jumping in to ask a few question or two. Don't let my post distract you from the path you are on.

Are any of the other accounts admin or are they standard users?

I read a members post a while back that spoke of recreating the user profile, don't know if I booked it or not. While I look, does that jog anyone else's memory? There might even be a tutorial on recreating a user profle.
The steps were fairly simple..,, I'll post what I find.

If you have another admin account, try creating a new user profile on that login.

User profile cannot be loaded.
If I log into safe mode and perform a net user username /del will windows ask me to create a new account next time I boot the computer?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Yeah I tried admin from normal boot, same happened as in safe mode.

Will try SFC /SCANNOW now.

built-in admin account vs regular admin account
Pretty basic question (I think). Is the built-in administrator's account exactly the same as a manually created local administrator's account privilege wise? Or does the built-in possess inherently elevated privileges? I have googled around, however, I can't find a clear answer for this. ...
