Windows 7: can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen

when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause.
Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.

If you could fill out the System Specs as completely as possible, it would help everyone assist you. Also if you could post a screen shot of your disk management. Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Have a look at this thread. It's the same problem you are having, and it mentions a solution:

Login screen flickers after W7 updates - tablet

You will need a bootable Windows disk, or restore disk.

The problem is caused by a bad Microsoft update, and you have to use a restore point to restore to a time before the update before you can log in. Microsoft has since fixed the update, and it seems to be safe to install now, but you should do it with some caution. You may want to avoid the update for now, I don't know how you might feel about that, or what other forum members will say about it.

The update in question is KB 3097877. Microsoft has reissued it and it seems to be ok now, but you'll have to roll back your system with system restore to get to a point where Windows will boot and you can reinstall it.

Anyway, follow the thread and the recommendation in it, and post your results. If you have trouble with the system restore, please post back for help.

yep. that's was the issue.
I uninstalled and everything went fine. Ran checksur and came up with four errors. I really need to learn how to fix them myself, because it's a everyday occurrence with different systems.
