Sure. The main oissue I was having was that I could not get the admin account to appear or any other accounts I created at the recovery command prompt.

I used Method 1 on this page:

Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE

which successfully added the admin account to the login screen. This allowed me to create a new user profile and copy the contents of the old one across to it.
