Can you log in when you boot into safe mode?

If yes, then while there, run SFC /SCANNOW from a command prompt:

In other words, run CMD.EXE and then type sfc /scannow and hit the enter key.

If it shows now integrity violations, ggod, but if not, then shutdown your computer and boot up into safe mode again and once again run sfc /scannow.

If you can not log on in safe mode, then let us know.
Thanks for posting this - it worked for me and saved me a good amount of grief!
